More Lies

Or, er, not.

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)?

Anyone?

UPDATE: "...don't mess with my kids or that Mama Bear comes to life..."

Kevin Drum:

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.
