The leftist media is fond of resurrecting figures that were central to narratives that they have created to destroy Republicans in the past. Anita Hill is dusted off every so often so they can stomp their feet and remind us that they hate Clarence Thomas for being a black man who isn’t liberal. Now it’s Valerie Plame’s turn. The woman who was so deeply undercover that she had a parking space at Langley was MSNBC’s “former covert operative” expert today for a segment on the CIA torture report, as if her administrative track career gave her some keen insight into enhanced interrogation techniques.
It was Ms. Plame who was supposed to bring down Karl Rove for good. Lo these many years later, Mr. Rove is doing quite well (for better or worse) and Ms. Plame is presumably on her way back to media mothballs.
