The Joseph Wilson / Valerie Plame affair is, in my recollection, associated with Three Big Bloggers from the left - Josh Marshall, Kevin Drum, and Mark Kleiman.
Kevin Drum has put up one post that I noticed, calling attention to the WaPo story and suggesting that "... it sure has an impact on Wilson's credibility". Indeed.
So, might we expect his latest thoughts on Joe Wilson? Well, and this may be a bit of a surprise to some on the left, his assessment of Wilson's credibility has been gloomy for quite a while - last September, when Wilson backed away from his Karl Rove allegation, Mr. Kleiman suggested that folks might be justified in their hesitancy about taking Wilson at his word. He repeated this thought in December (late in an update), both times noting (correctly) that, Wilson notwithstanding, there is a legal process which must go on.
But surely there is more to the latest Senate revelations than the question of Joe Wilson's ability to attract an audience? Mr. Kleiman might have some insights into possible changes in the legal or political environment. Or he might want to suggest a mirror image to this post, and view the latest blogospheric reaction in Left profile. Well, if he can find any reaction to review.
My thought - it may come as a shock to the folks on the left not following this story closely that one of their own threw in the towel on Wilson a long time ago. Since Wilson is back in the news, would Mr. Kleiman care to re-apprise people of that fact? Or (and I can't think why) has he since changed his mind about Wilson, picked up the towel, and re-joined the left?
In light of these new Senate report revelations, has he re-calibrated just how much hestitancy about taking Wilson's word is he now experiencing, or recommending to others? Does he think that Kerry should continue to have Wilson as an advisor to his campaign?
