Valerie Plame is back stalking Karl Rove.
Remember a definitive piece on the subject? Daily Kos is all over the CIA call for an investigation and John Dean at Findlaw finds the Valerie Plame 'outing' worse than Nixonian. Prometheus Speaks and Cal Pundit have more,
On July 14, Robert Novak's column carried the assertion that Wilson had been recruited for the mission at the instigation of his wife, Valerie Plame. That assertion was sourced to "two senior administration officials," and was accompanied by the unsourced assertion that "Wilson never worked for the CIA, but his wife, Valerie Plame, is an Agency operative on weapons of mass destruction." Neither assertion was central to the story, whose thrust was that the Wilson mission was so minor, and handled at such a low level within the CIA, that it never reached the people around the President who decided what would go into the State of the Union Address.
From the Valerie Plame Affair by Mark A. R. Kleiman on Open Source Politics

Rove went a'courtin' and he did wrong oh ho
He sang to Novak a secret song oh ho
Rove started talkin just to fan the flame
He said the name of Ms. Valerie Plame oh ho

Mr. Wilson heard Rove and he got mad oh ho
Mr. Wilson knew Rove was very bad oh ho.
He broke the law when he opened his mouth
Frog march Karl Rove from the Bush White House oh ho

Rove got to talkin and he must pay oh ho
When he ran his mouth to Novak that day oh ho
Rove said "In the CIA is Valerie Plame."
Now Rove will have to go down in flames oh ho.
