The traitorish gop thought that they had extinguished the Plame but she's coming back red hot to burn em'.

ROTF!

Look at that face.

He wouldn't know how to get those jeans dirty the honest way.

But he wants to be President, and just like Hillary, HE DESERVES IT!

This man is a legend in his own mind.

Plame is right about the driving course. I had a female friend who joined the CIA and one of the first things she did was to take that course. She enjoyed it, but then she was an ex-Marine, not that Marines are ever "ex"!

Plame would have an interesting career if she wins. Will be keeping an eye on her!

Speaking strictly as a critique of the ad, I don’t like the “scores to settle” part. I send my congresspeople to Washington to work for me, not to settle scores.

I love Valerie in that video. She seems overqualified for the House of Reps, IMO but I guess that is a good place to start her political career.

mudhouse, I thought the exact same. Portraying themselves are rough, tough, blue-collar folks, getting their hands dirty.

Camille I think George W thought he could do both too. And see where that hot is.

"In a fact-check for The Washington Post Tuesday, Glenn Kessler, who testified at the leak trial, debunked Plame's attempt to blame Scooter Libby for leaking her information and called her out for exaggerating her role in the CIA and trying to make Trump the bad guy.

For the assertions, Kessler ultimately gives her Three Pinocchios, only sparing her the Post's worst rating, Four Pinocchios, for allowing her a "fuzzy" potential argument.

Kessler begins by first noting that Plame's video potentially misleads viewers about her role in the CIA. "The ad strongly suggests that Plame was an undercover operative in places such as Iran and North Korea, when that was not the case," he writes. "She was under diplomatic cover in Greece," he notes.

While she wasn't undercover in Iran and North Korea, she was "operations chief at the Joint Task Force on Iraq of the Counterproliferation Division of the CIA’s clandestine operations directorate when her name was publicly disclosed in a column written by Robert Novak and published in The Washington Post on July 14, 2003," Kessler explains.

The real question, he continues, is whether Vice President Dick Cheney's chief of staff Scooter Libby was actually the source of the leak, as Plame claims in the ad. The answer is no."
