Armitage Wins Contest, Downplays Article


WASHINGTON, D.C. -- In what the Democratic Underground called an obvious attempt to divert attention from his involvement in the Valerie Plame affair, former Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage today announced the creation of the first annual "Uncle Fester Look-Alike Contest", and then proceeded to take first place. The radical Move-On.org denounced the contest as a "stunt" that was designed to evoke in Americans fond memories of the fun-loving avuncular character from "The Addams Family" TV series, while down-playing his truly sinister nature.

In an article entitled "The Man Who Said Too Much", Michael Isikoff reported in the September 4th, 2006 issue of Newsweek magazine that Richard Armitage was the original source for Robert Novak's piece outing Valerie Plame. Isikoff also reported that Armitage had told Bob Woodward of Plame's identity in 2003, and that special counsel Patrick Fitzgerald investigated Armitage's role "aggressively," but did not charge Armitage with a crime because he "found no evidence that Armitage knew of Plame's covert CIA status when he talked to Novak and Woodward."

"I talked to Novak and Woodward regularly", said Armitage. "They enjoyed pretending to be part of the Addams Family cast. Bob Novak liked to play Lurch (he's pretty stiff you know). And Woodward liked to play the unsuspecting neighbor that came to the front door. It was loads of fun!"

Armitage had no comment on the Isikoff article in Newsweek.

So all Armitage had to do was screw a lightbulb into his mouth and shed light on the whole affair.
Very funny article!

Bwahahahahaha! Good one Hawkeye. I'd say Pelosi for Mortitia, but she's not good looking enough. Maybe she can be cousin It: cover that face with hair and NO speaking!

Well, we know who to cast in the role of Lurch, don't we?

Nylecoj,
What a "brilliant" and de-"light"-ful comment. (:D)

Camo,
There is a resemblence... no?

Marge,
Great suggestion!

Beerme,
Actually, I think Kerry looks more like Herman Munster, but who cares?

Rush had great input on this very topic on his 8/28 broadcast.
It just ticks me off that the prosecuter knew Armitage was the leaker but continued "persecuting" Rove and Libby not prosecuting.Libby is still under indictment for a bogus trumped up charge and will have to spend millions for legal fees.Our 'injustice' system is very frightening.

Maggie,
Well said... the "injustice" system is frightening indeed. Just consider the eminent domain ruling alone. We must continue to stand up for our rights or we will no longer be a free people.

Regards...

Good one Hawkeye!

He also looks like an evil "Mr. Clean"! Maybe call him, "Mr. Dirty"?

Off topic, but if you have ever told anyone you would do something, "--when pigs fly!"
It's time to do it, as I saw Hillary get on a plane yesterday!

BTW, Scrapple seems to be down.

Wonder if it has anything to do with Hankmeister and myself posting over at David Corn's blog?

We may have incurred the wrath of the lib hackers.

So, Armitage is 'supposed' to be a Republican( He's part of the McCain gang) so he tells a secret, but is too stupid to realize ,it is the same secret they are having all the hearings about?
Ya' think?
He watches as they "Frogmarch " Libby out of the White House ,but still says nothing.
I think Libby should sue him for all of his legal bills and the loss of his job,for knowingly hiding evidence in a Federal Investigation.He should sue for pain and suffering ,too. And he should force Joe and Val ,and even Novak to testify. What a bunch of dirty ,backstabbing liars and traitors.

Ah, get a grip you guys. Armitage, Libby, Rove et al can point their fingers at each other all they want, but I'm going to take a leaf out of the Republican playbook on this, namely: shoot 'em all and let God sort 'em out, although, as an athiest opposed to capital punishment, I ammend this to: jail 'em all and let 'BigBoy' sort 'em out.

They're all heading for the big house anyway, and Dick and George and all the rest will be with them, for crimes against the constitution and humanity. 'When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag' said a wise man, and even the John Birch Society agrees.

Keep talking, Righties – you're digging yourseles a bigger grave every day.

Cheers

RAM,
I don't think Mr. Clean had that many chins! But anyway, I guess ScrappleFace is back up now. Somebody musta pulled the plug outta the wall socket, eh?

Barb,
I agree. Even though he's a Republican, he's still a jerk. Why put people through needless legal hassles when you can do a 'show-stopper', eh?

Hey everybody,
ELROY WAS HERE! ...Sorry, I couldn't help myself.

Is it elroy, (as in the Jetson's), or maybe killjoy? lol Actually he sounds just like every other parrot/clone/sheep lib in America, (or terrorist outside America).

Had to come back after watching Parco P.I. last night on CourtTV.

This guy not only looks like Uncle Fester, he SOUNDS like him too!

I say let's prosecute this guy for treason. His non-outing led to a huge distraction from the War on Terror.

Oh dear. Is that it? The old 'parrot/clone/sheep' nonsense that the rightist clones parrot like, yes, sheep. See? We can both play that game.

Again, typical behaiour of the right. Shoot the messenger in an ad hominem attack in order to avoid the subject. Why can't you guys ever address the issues?

Cheers
