While working out in the gym the other day I ended up watching Fox News. In one of the station's characteristic tirades, an announcer claimed that Rove deserved a medal for outing Plame. I couldn't believe my ears. At long last, I actually agree with someone on Fox! (Hopefully, this doesn't mean I'll have to change my blog's moniker to Swerve Right.) I also think Rove deserves a medal. (He's got a cool first name after all.) And while we're at it, we should give all who identify CIA agents medals. We can then compile the names and place them in a large file under the heading Active CIA Agents on Google, along with a list of the CIA's current activities. Because when all is said and done, we don't need CIA agents or secrets. Covert activities are for police states like China or tiny Orwellian states like North Korea. The U.S., which is the most armed state on the globe and which is purportedly a democracy, doesn't need to carry out activities away from the watchful eyes of its citizenry. Perhaps with better supervision, we can prevent idiots from supporting the likes of Noriega, the Taliban, or Saddam. So all you on the left, you need to swerve right a bit and give this Rove fellow a gold medal!
