Dubious Claim of the Day
Topic: NewsBusters
A May 6 NewsBusters post by Noel Sheppard makes the following point regarding Valerie Plame's seven-figure book deal:

This makes one wonder if the drive-by media are going to praise the Bush administration for giving Wilson a new, significantly more profitable writing career. After all, she will likely make more money from this book than she made her entire life working for the CIA.

Sheppard writes that he's making this claim "with a tad bit of tongue in cheek", but then adds: "However, the media have made it one of their goals to regularly drive home the point that this affair ruined Wilson’s career." He concludes: "Boy, I sure wish the Administration would ruin my career like this!"

Uh, Noel, for that to happen, you have to have a career that's worth ruining.
