Joe Wilson, Great American

By on 10.20.05 | 11:07AM

Joe Wilson, that rock-ribbed patriot, declaimed himself yesterday to the San Francisco crowd as uninterested in running for public office. In remarks published by "," Wilson is quoted as saying he was too much a true child of the 1960s to be elected and had "too many wives and taken too many drugs. And, yes, I did inhale." This, from the man chosen by the CIA -- not the White House -- to go to Niger on a secret mission to investigate intelligence on WMD. Were the Plame Name Blame Game not so serious, it would be hilarious. If anyone still working at the CIA was responsible for hiring Wilson for the Niger mission, and in that I'd include le femme Valerie, they should be fired forthwith.
