Lawrence O'Donnell has a take on Viveca Novak's involvement with Luskin:

"If Fitzgerald does not indict Rove after hearing from Novak, then it will be Viveca Novak who saves Rove. Which is to say it will be Luskin’s relationship with the press, with Viveca Novak in particular, that saved Rove. If Rove beats the rap, it will definitely be the product of Bob Luskin’s particular skill and cleverness...read on"

My good friend Jane Hamsher, who is a kick ass blogger that I've known for many months now and works harder than almost anyone I know-who doesn't have a husband that I've played basketball with (I have played basketball with my best friend Bill for over twenty years though) counters with this:

"I absolutely don't agree. Fitzgerald is dogged. He may not indict until he thinks he has enough to do so, but if he thinks Rove's guilty -- and my guess is he most certainly does or he would not still be pursuing him after two years -- he will keep digging and keep digging until he has enough to go after him...read on"

(Alert: Run-on sentence coming):

If anyone believes this utterly phony story that Luskin is cooking up (with the new special ingredient called "VNak"), that Rove forgot and now remembers because a little "VNak" spice was sprinkled in is as stupid as Bill O'Reilly using a year old Comedy Central clip to attack Jon Stewart with over the fake "war on Christmas." Lawrence could be right in the end, but only because Fitzmas thinks he can't get through the taste test. We'll know more after "VNak" testifies and brings her new lawyer with her.
