  •  He's not a spy. (3+ / 0-)

    Rule #0 of spycraft is: you have to be a spy.

    He's basically a cabinet-level department head. If he's being "blackmailed" or giving up sekrit pillow talk info, it's probably more about how much they're spending on paper.

    Not that he doesn't know things, but he's not a source, not a contact, etc. If he starts calling people up and saying, "hey, bob, what's going on with that computer virus in Iran thing, can you tell me where it will be uploaded first" that would probably be more of a red flag than an affair in the first place.

    This is most interesting to me as a hypothesis test for whether or not the Right Wing Entertainment Complex is going to try harder will reality or not. Apparently not.

    GOP: The Party of Acid rain, Abortion of the American Dream, and Amnesty for Wall Street.
