Congress shall make no law, but the Bushies can do what they want!

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
American journalists moving closer to jail time. No, they are not in some Muslim country. They are right here in the good old U.S. of A, where the above quote is supposed to ring true.

Why the hell isn't Bob Novak in trouble? He's the one that started all of this.
Despite initial appearances, Novak will likely play an incredibly small role in the Plame Affair from here on out. Sure, the information he published in his July column about Wilson demonstrates that two senior administration officials may have broken the law. But that's been known for more than two months, and until Sunday, most of the carping was confined to the left-leaning portions of the blogosphere and to liberal publications such as The Nation. The Plame Affair didn't take off until a second leak: On Sept. 28, the Washington Post reported that "a senior administration official said that before Novak's column ran, two top White House officials called at least six Washington journalists and disclosed the identity and occupation of Wilson's wife."
Don't answer that question. We all know the reason.
