The questions you should be axsking(ebonics spelling) is why did VALERIE PLAME or her 'real' maiden name state that "...she (PLAME)wanted to marry rich and no just be a secretary at C.I.A. anymore"???

My reply:


Thanks for your thoughtful note.

Actually I'm not part of the National Asshole Media. Just the local asshole media.

Have a good holiday,
