And since rampant, single-source, implausible speculation is the order of the week for neo-cons everywhere, let's get us a little piece of that, too:
Waas: Rove Was Novak's Source; Two Men May Have Planned Cover-Up
National Journal's Murray Waas reports that Karl Rove was in fact columnist Robert Novak's source for learning Valerie Plame's identity, and that the two men, upon learning of a federal investigation, spoke and may have created a false cover story to hide the truth.
In other words, there's mounting evidence that Novak and Rove not only lied to the FBI and grand jury, but they conspired to obstruct justice.
But don't worry. I'm not actually claiming that this happened, per se, as it were. No, no, we're just shooting the breeze here, just us guys, right? Just talkin'. Of course, if this turns out to be true, well, I'm going to be downright insufferably smug.
As magic dolphin woman once said, "Is it irresponsible to speculate? It is irresponsible not to." Damn straight, Peg. Damn straight.
