You Don't Tug On Superman's Cape...

You don't spit into the wind
You don't pull the mask off the old Lone Ranger
And you don't mess around with Joe.

Good citizen Joe Wilson is raising a new rucus:
Joseph Wilson, the husband of outed CIA operative Valerie Plame, called on Thursday for an inquiry by The Washington Post into the conduct of journalist Bob Woodward, who repeatedly criticized the leak investigation without disclosing his own involvement."It certainly gives the appearance of a conflict of interest. He was taking an advocacy position when he was a party to it," Wilson said.
Before publicly disclosing his involvement in the leak case on Wednesday, Woodward was a frequent critic of Fitzgerald's investigation in television and radio appearances. Woodward has described the case as laughable and Fitzgerald's behavior as "disgraceful" and has referred to him as "a junkyard dog."
One day before Libby was charged, Woodward said he saw no evidence of criminal intent.
Marvin Kalb of Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government called Woodward's conduct "puzzling" and said he had more explaining to do. "Since he knew he had information that was relevant and he chose not to disclose that information for reasons he said had to do with confidentiality, it's odd that he would rip into the prosecutor so publicly and so persistently," Kalb said.- [full article]

That's right, I say badder than old King Kong
And meaner than a junkyard dog!
Meanwhile, leaky reporters at the Washington Post fume.

Probed!? I know Bob and he does not need a probe. Quite the opposite - he needs the big stick removed from his ass!

Woodward is a putty-faced robot. When he was human he graciously donated his heart and brain to someone in need (top secret)years ago...

Those who protest to much? Now Fitz take a look at all the journalist who take a personal view of your case. Might find more Bob Woodwards out there. I guess if I were involved with the leak I wouldn't want you investigating it either. I still think this case was a group of people that tried to spread out to alot of journalist the story as to make it hard to find just one. I think Denzel should play you in the up coming movie The Corrupt White House and some journalist.

Our guy doesn't just pick on reporters. He goes after the head honchos too!

"A federal grand jury indicted Conrad M. Black, the prominent and flashy media entrepreneur, on eight counts of mail and wire fraud today along with three of his deputies, the United States Attorney for Chicago, Patrick Fitzgerald, said." (NY Times)

Don't forget how that particular song ends Pat.

It doesn't end good for Joe.
