Rove confirmed Plame as CIA to Novak too

Here's the article, now read John's analysis. ..."that Rove also confirmed to Novak that he'd heard Plame was CIA. This conversation occured, reportedly, 3 days before Rove then told TIME's Matt Cooper that Plame was CIA."

Now as far as I understand it, this shoots down all the bullshit GOP Talking points about Rove unwittingly feeding Cooper her name in passing. Thereby confirming once and for all that Karl Rove is a Turd Blossom. I think Paul Krugman agrees.
