[FoRK] Plamegate gets bigger...

I have to say, I really don't get what the big deal is over the whole 
Valerie Plame thing is.  Everything I have read suggests that it is 
nothing more than the media and politicos trying really hard to make a 
story where there isn't one.

This whole thing isn't "news", and generally reeks like something that 
is largely fodder for Beltway gossip rags.  I'm sure someone will come 
along and explain why I should care, but this reads exactly like the 
myriad of minor scandals in the Clinton administration.  All heat, no 

Heuristic:  If a "scandal" has "-gate" appended to it by the political 
media, it is partisan political posturing of no consequence.
