And beyond the headline, I got nothin'. I keep trying to read about it, because hey, if so many people are interested in it, it must be interesting, right? But even the briefest summary is as twisty and boring as an earthworm. (It bores through the dirt, get it? I'm just a great person.)
So: There was this CIA agent, or she wasn't really an agent, or yes she was; and Karl Rove gave out her name during an interview so her career would be ruined and she couldn't do undercover missions to steal secret microchips anymore, or no he didn't, or yes he did; and he did so, or not, because her husband said some stuff that wasn't, or was, true about Iraq or Africa or someplace; and then the husband disappeared for a while and his website about restoring honesty magically became a Kerry website*, but now he's back on TV and his hair really looks great; and there are these reporters who are in trouble... That's the thing, it's reporters covering other reporters, which is never not boring. And the whole Rove deal. "Grrr, Rove, must kill Rove!!!" I guess he's a jerk and everything, but can't they dig up something juicier on him? [There's probably a funny example I could put here. Why start now.]
Maybe I'm just -gated out, but as a scandal? On a scale from 1 to 10, I give it Zero Blowjobs. So to speak.
