Certainly not some full-blown, purposeful, Big Lie mega-hoodwink of the great and gullible American public.
Who will be the first prominent commentator on the left to finally step up to bat and say that the Niger/uranium story may have had real legs?
I know it won't be Paul Krugman or Maureen Dowd, Atrios or Daily Kos, of course.
And TPM is still, it appears, working on a Big Story.
But can't someone with integrity on the Left at least entertain the fact that there is more to this story than Joe Wilson's all clear?
Some reasonable center-left guy like a Kevin Drum (from mondo-blogs) or Nick Kristof (from Big Media)?
On the Plame thing, he (Josh Marshall) agrees that it's probably irrelevant legally. However, he doesn't mention whether he thinks it hurts Wilson's overall credibility. Seems like it does to me. [emphasis added]
Yeah, I'd say.Posted by Gregory Djerejian at July 8, 2004 01:57 PM
