A rather paranoid Novak disses Bush
Edited on Thu Oct-16-03 09:16 PM by party_line
Twists and turns that I don't even know if it's possible to follow. Novak was a quasi war critic, then played the dupe (IMO) in the WH's political espionage concerning the CIA agent. Talking to some journalism students, he gets in a pretty good dig at Jr (which makes sense if he was a dupe)

snip>
Asked if it was intimidating to meet President George Bush, he drew laughs by replying, "No. Why should it be? I knew him back when he was still drinking."
end snip>

I said paranoid because of this earlier in the article:

Students also asked Novak if the backlash surprised him. He said "firestorms" like the one surrounding his column occur weekly in Washington.

"This has stayed alive for several reasons," he said. "A lot of people want to use it to bring down President Bush. There are a lot of people -- on the left and right -- who don't like me and would like to discredit me."
end snip>
