Can You Say, Slow News Day?

From Jesus' General, via the Daou Report, comes this shocking piece of news: Valerie Plame went to a Bruce Springsteen concert. And she bought the tickets under her married name, Valerie Wilson: Obviously, she was trying to prevent anyone from finding out her shame and disgrace.

Fox News's Deborah Orin was the first to drop the bombshell:

Outed CIA spy Valerie Plame last fall gave a campaign contribution to go toward an anti-Bush fund-raising concert starring Bruce Springsteen, it was revealed Tuesday night.

It's the first revelation that Plame participated in anti-Bush political activity while working for the CIA.

The $372 donation to the anti-Bush group America Coming Together (search), first reported by Time magazine's Web site, was made in Plame's married name of Valerie E. Wilson and covered two tickets.

Bravo to Fox News for reporting that Plame "gave a campaign contribution" instead of writing that she bought two tickets to a Bruce Springsteen concert. Everyone knows that only Bush-haters love Springsteen's music or would want to hear him in person.

Clearly, as Orin strongly implies, "participating in anti-Bush activity," although technically not against the law, is an act of treason. Although the White House has not yet succeeded in making the Democratic Party illegal, the Bush administration quite rightly regards the Democrats as a threat to our one-party system, and any government employee who would pay to see a Kerry-supporting rock star has forfeited her right to protection under the federal law that makes it a felony to reveal the identity of an undercover C.I.A. agent.
