Where’s Valerie?

WHERE’S VALERIE?….I am going through Valerie Plame withdrawals. I blame laziness at the Washington Post.

UPDATE: Arthur Silber sends in this Robert Novak sighting from the Palm Beach Post. Novak says he has no regrets and is thinking of voting for Al Sharpton.

And Ogged (of Unfogged) sends in a genuine Valerie Plame sighting from Newsday. She says the whole experience has been “surreal.”

UPDATE 2: The New York Times has an enormously padded story telling us that some officials within the FBI are upset that John Ashcroft hasn’t appointed a special prosecutor to take over the case.

And the Washington Post has the same Plame sighting as Newsday, reporting that “she sat quietly, wiping away a tear,” as her husband gave a speech after accepting an award.

OK, I feel better now.
