The credulous journalists are making quite the racket, with everyone reading NYT’s "lawyer involved in the case" to be Armitage’s lawyer, admitting that Armitage was Novak’s first and primary source–something that Armitage has no direct way of knowing (Fitzgerald may have told him, but Novak apparently hasn’t spoken to him since the leak conversation, so Armitage could only go by Novak’s public comments). There are even wingnuts complaining the lefty blogosphere is silent about Armitage’s involvement, in spite of the fact that we’ve been talking about Armitage’s involvement since March. And, here I am, no doubt boring my readers with one after another post on the Isikoff-Corn "scoop."
Correct me if I’m wrong. But the real silence isn’t coming from the lefty blogosphere. The real silence is coming from Karl Rove.
