    It is not like he molested little kids, beat his wife, or killed anyone so where do this come from?
    His actions of outing undercover operatives could have very well caused the death of multiple people. All because of personal political motives. His selfish actions cost someone a career that they worked their entire life for.

    I would never wish someone to rot in hell, but I agree with Spider. Just because he's dead doesn't mean I have to have respect for him.

    Read my post more carefully. I didn't say that he was similar to a pedophile, I said that when someone dies, they don't automatically deserve any more respect than when they were alive (just as how when MJ died, I objected to how everyone ignored his likely if not proven child molestations). Novack's transgression is what it is, and my post was only saying that in his death it should not be ignored or minimalized. I didn't mean to imply that I hate him to the same degree as W-U-W, and I'm sorry if that's what misled you.

    I have no problem with people not respecting someone.h

    In regards to his "outing of undercover operatives" that was BS and there were so many mistruths going on in the media. Didn't they do a whole investigation into this and nothing came of it? If you listen to the mainstream media (left) he was criminal if you listened to foxnews or the radio (right) he did nothing wrong. The actual answer is probably somewhere in the middle, but it is not as bad as the left tried to make it.

    I actually read both types of media and my conclusion is that he is dirty. He's certainly not the only one, and I'm sure he was getting pressure from above (vp), but we'll probably never know.
    The investigation did't even focus on Novak but Cheney....that is why i think he was just a pawn to try and get to the Bush administration. Like I said though Novack probably isn't as bad as the left says and not as good as the right says but most likely crosses into that gray area a lot.

    Although you are right we probably never will know the truth.

    What happened to your posts Rick....looks like I am just some crazy guy talking to myself, although some on here would probably say that is a true statement

    I deleted it 30 seconds after posting because it's just not worth the effort to argue about this. It's a minor footnote in history.
