That loud noise you hear…

…is the sound of last week’s Republican talking points crashing to the ground:

Mr. Cooper said in his article that Mr. Rove did not mention the name of Mr. Wilson’s wife, Valerie Wilson, or say that she was a covert officer. But, he wrote: “Was it through my conversation with Rove that I learned for the first time that Wilson’s wife worked at the C.I.A. and may have been responsible for sending him? Yes. Did Rove say that she worked at the ‘agency’ on ‘W.M.D.’? Yes.

Stay tuned for this week’s newly retooled efforts.
