ROBERT NOVAK PHONES IN A COLUMN....Shorter Robert Novak:

There was no orchestrated leak, everybody knew about her anyway, she's just an analyst, and it's all part of a smear campaign against President Bush anyway. Oh, and I always ignore facts dug up by other reporters if they are inconvenient to me.

What a tiresome and predictable collection of Republican talking points. After 46 years in Washington, Novak apparently still doesn't realize that an "offhand revelation" isn't always as offhand as it appears.

I'm tempted for the first time ever to fisk a column, but it's not worth the trouble. Just read and marvel.
