Valerie Plame sues Cheney, Rove for "destroying career" -- and signs a book deal

Former super-duper-top-secret agent Valerie Plame is suing Dick Cheney and Karl Rove because, in the words of the AP, "they engaged in a 'whispering campaign' to destroy her career." The distraught wife of Joe Wilson noted at her press conference : "I'd much rather be continuing my career as a public servant than as a plaintiff in a lawsuit."

That's understandable. Her position as a CIA bureaucrat allowed her to ship that dolt of a husband out of the country on fool's errands at the agency's expense. Fortunately, with her Simon & Schuster book deal that was announced yesterday, she should still be able to afford to send Joe away once in a while. (Will S&S set the pub date for the opening of the court case?)

Hat tip to Stephen Spruiell at NRO's Media Blog for reminding all of us to keep on donating to Plame's legal fund.
