plamegate goes to the courts

Interesting to see that exposed CIA agent Valerie Plame is suing the true Axis of Evil -- Cheney, Rove, and Scooter. It was established during Clinton's term that lawsuits against sitting presidents would be permitted by the courts. Whether that same ability will apply here seems uncertain to me.

First, these are Republicans being sued, not libertines I mean Democrats, who after all deserve to be sued because they get oral sex in the office and don't cut taxes on the obscenely wealthy. Second, the triumverate is being sued for things done in the line of work, more or less. If you believe their line that they can plot to expose a secret agent's identity in the cause of partisan politics and call that part of their official duties...
