....Novak isn't the only conservative pontificator to misrepresent a Democrat's views about Social Security. As Media Matters has noted previously, Fox's Brit Hume has twisted the words of Franklin Delano Roosevelt to suggest that he would have favored Bush's privatization plan. But Novak is unique among the pack -- and not just because he continues to walk among us while real journalists face jail time in connection with his outing of Valerie Plame. Like Jake and Elwood before him, Novak stands out because --

as the Washington Post puts it -- he's on "a mission from God." In a Vanity Fair profile out Wednesday, Novak says that he has spent his life "trying to tell the truth and taking positions that I hope are godly positions, positions that I hope are helpful to my fellow man."

We just can't tell you how much we appreciate it, Bob.
