Miss Run Amok Resurfaces

On Fox, no less. But just one minute--for all who pegged Judy Miller as a neocon, not so fast:
“I was a Hillary supporter who has gone over to the Obama side,” Miller told Politico earlier by phone. “Lots of people think they know what I believe, but don’t.”
I suspect that will be a tough one for many to swallow, figuring she's pulling a Colin Powell rehabilitation maneuver. Oddly, both had parts in the Plame affair.

But I'm not convinced she was ever a neocon. After all, she was a New York Times reporter, and besides, we've been told that guilt by association is wrong, wrong, wrong. And sad. Very sad. Pay no mind to the fact that Joe Lieberman and Christopher Hitchens, both liberal thinkers about everything short of national security, were instantly and virulently branded as neocons for supporting Bush on Iraq (although Hitch has fallen off the wagon--predicted, sort of) and such associations are perfectly legitimate, yet McCain brings up Ayers and he's an evil racist. Ah, just another day in leftyworld.

Wonder if Ms. Miller has a similar narrow agreement with Fox News she had with Patrick Fitzgerald on her grand jury testimony about Scooter? In other words, can someone finally ask her where she got Joe Wilson's name before talking to Libby, and just what the hell the "Aspens" were all about? Or what does she think about that reporter shield law that quietly went down the drain last month?

Maybe it'll be covered in the movie.
