"ACE" ACED THE PLAME/WILSON/CIA IMBROGLIO
I'm not all of the way through reading yet my 30+ blog subscriptions on my Bloglines' aggregator, but I suspect this brilliant post by ACE at Ace of Spades HQ may well be the MUST READ of the day or certainly among a short list of incisive posts.

Do read the entire piece. ACE also links to Zell Miller and Rush Limbaugh.
