Only in DC...

Judith Miller's Trip to Vegas

Here's another one of those "only-in-DC" stories for you. Judith Miller, the NYTs reporter who went to jail rather than reveal her 'source' in the Valerie Plame scandal, is going to Vegas to get a First Amendment Award for her 'bravery.' But the thing is that Ms. Miller apparently had the source's permission to reveal him prior to going to jail and then earlier this week, she testified that she didn't recall if anyone told her that Valerie Flame was a spy. Dear Lord...giving her a First Amendment Award is like giving Former CIA Director Tenent the Congressional Medal of Freedom for his fine work.

Sullivan links to a good summary here:

Me, I'm holding out for the Montgomery Burns Award for Outstanding Achievement in the Field of Excellence.
