A Bad Day for the Left Gets Worse: Plame Suit Dismissed

First, Michael Mukasey says there will be no prosecutions forthcoming in the Justice Department nonscandal, and now comes the delicious news that non-undercover CIA agent Valerie Plame has her bogus lawsuit against Vice President Cheney dismissed.
A U.S. appeals court on Tuesday dismissed former CIA analyst Valerie Plame's lawsuit against Vice President Dick Cheney and several former Bush administration officials for disclosing her identity to the public.

The Court of Appeals in Washington dealt another setback to the former spy, who has said her career was destroyed when officials blew her cover in 2003 to retaliate against her husband, Iraq war critic Joseph Wilson.

Plame's outing led a lengthy criminal investigation, which resulted in the conviction of Cheney's top aide, Lewis "Scooter" Libby, for perjury and obstruction of justice.

President George W. Bush commuted Libby's 2 1/2-year prison sentence last year.

Plame and Wilson sought money damages from Cheney, Libby, former White House aide Karl Rove and former State Department official Richard Armitage for violating their constitutional free speech, due process and privacy rights.

But a three-judge panel of the appeals court upheld a federal judge's ruling that dismissed the couple's lawsuit.

The court ruled Cheney and the others were acting within their official capacity when they revealed Plame's identity to reporters.
Expect another round of fawning interviews with the usual suspects for this annoying media whore and her two-bit fraud husband.

Update: Glenn Reynolds says it's Fitzmas for the rest of us.

Subj: Fuck off you cock sucker

Go die in a fire and take your bullshit blog with you, you fucking fascist butt-rapist fag.
Classy. I could have sworn Olbermann's bosses told him to stay off the blogs.

No coincidence this lovely missive came right in between these two comments. I'll go out on a limb and say they came from the same person, who was traced to a NYC IP.
You are a stupid fucking twat.

Go stick your head up Bush's ass and suffocate to death, you scumbag.

I told you it would be a bad day for the left.

Update: Thanks also to protein wisdom, Hot Air, Tom Maguire and Gateway Pundit for the links.

A somewhat subdued reaction from the left, considering the emotion they invested in this from the outset. These boobs now await comment from the White House. Sure, keep waiting. The commenters waste little time getting to the Hitler analogies. Original!

This seems to be the appropriate reaction:
