I've been hearing a lot lately about the Valerie Plame/Karl Rove scandal, and I admit, I never really got what the big deal was.
On the left, it seems a foregone conclusion that Karl Rove is guilty, and that this is just part of the Bush conspiracy to go to war in Iraq.
On the right, the view is that this is no big deal and is being hyped by the media to hurt the Bush administration.
I found Andrew McCarthy's article about the situation
to be very clear and informative in explaining the background of the scandal. He also provides several great links
to pertinent information.
