Quote of the Day - Tony Soprano Approved

Gene Lyons commenting on the White House's outing of undercover CIA agent Valerie Plame:

In the [New York] Times' front-page account of Miller's off-again, on-again refusal to testify before Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald’s grand jury, editor Bill Keller admits some embarrassment.

"I wish it had been a clear-cut whistleblower case," he said.

I wonder what they’re putting in the water coolers up on West 43 rd Street. It wasn't a whistleblower case at all. It was the exact opposite: the most powerful people in the United States using the press to damage a whistleblower by endangering his wife, something even the Mob won't do. [emphasis added]
Wrong again Mr. Lyons. That's something the Italian Mafia wouldn't do. This is the Texas Mafia. Sheesh.
