Novak notices Pat

Bob Novak searched Google News and Lexis and discovered that no mainstream media wrote a word about Pat's earmark embarrassment. But he clearly thinks if it's not covered by the mainstream media, it's not been "picked up." Maybe he's right. What do you think? here's what he said:
Meanwhile, events during the last week of June demonstrated that the celebrated transparency in the House is a sham. Amendments to strike transparent earmarks are brought up for a floor vote, they are overwhelmingly defeated and the news media completely ignore the story. Searches of Lexis-Nexis and Google News suggest that no one -- and we mean absolutely no one -- has picked up on the story of Rep. Patrick McHenry (R-N.C.) and the embarrassing fight he lost to keep an earmark in his district.

I guess Crooks and Liars, and Government Executive dot com and the Lakeland Florida Ledger and Human Events dot com, and the Hill and yours truly are "no one -- and we mean absolutely no one"!

Good to see you back!
As for Novak, I consider him to be just one more pimp for Georgie. He did, after all, help out Plame and he knows better. He knows what he did was wrong, but it got him attention and probably some favors from up top. IMO Novak belongs in jail, along with the others who participated in the destruction of Plame's career and network.
