Another One - Ambassador Joseph Wilson, he of the SCANDAL involving the CIA, sweet tea and yellowcake, has just thrown John Kerry a lifeline. Kerry has previously jumped on assertions made in books by Richard Clarke, Ron Suskind and Bob Woodward to give him ammunition in his campaign against the president. There is one major difference between those books and the one written by Wilson. The previous books were mostly about something other than the author.
Judging by the book's cover, Joe Wilson doesn't want anyone to forget this is all about him. Since the man's 'privacy has been invaded' by the Bush administration, he's been on countless television shows, written numerous editorials and had a photo spread in Vanity Fair. Now he's plastered his mug all over a book. You've just got to know that deep down inside, Wilson loves Robert Novak and his anonymous Bush administration source. Why shouldn't he? After all, they've made him rich and famous.
