Bob Novak: Probably a Douchebag

From Holden:

What an insufferable ass.

In an interview on CNN’s Situation Room Friday, Robert Novack said he “probably” regrets writing the column that revealed the name of CIA employee Valerie Plame.

“I probably do [regret writing it]” he told anchor Wolf Blitzer, “because it’s caused me so much trouble. I don’t think I did anything wrong, but as a practical matter, it wasn’t a big scoop. You know, I think it was in the seventh paragraph of a 13-paragraph story or 11-paragraph story…. And so it was just a throw-away line.”

Poor Novak, his leak caused him “so much trouble.” It cost Valerie Plame her career (watch out for that civil suit, Bob) and it caused untold damage to this country’s efforts to monitor the spread of some of the most dangerous weapons ever invented, but the “trouble” it caused Bob Novak is paramount.
