More idiocy from Linda Chavez

Linda Chavez's column in the SF Chronicle today is more of the same from Bush supporters trying to discredit Joseph Wilson and Valerie Plame. Chavez points out that Wilson was a Clinton appointee, but doesn't mention that he was also appointed ambassador to Gabon by President George H.W. Bush. Chavez tries to blame Plame for hurting national security by contributing to the Gore 2000 campaign and listing her employer, but fails to point out (as Robert Novak has reported) that she used a fictitious company name.
The bottom line is that it doesn't matter which political party Wilson and Plame belong to. Senior Bush administration officials leaked that Plame was a CIA operative, thereby committing a serious crime, and perhaps threatening national security and the lives of other CIA operatives. No amount of dissembling by Chavez can make that the fault of the Democrats.
