I Am So Smart, S-M-R-T!

Me, on Saturday, talking about unanswered questions in l'affaire Judith Miller.
I guess we'll have to wait for her tell-all book to know for sure [why she chose to play the martyr for 12 weeks in the pokey when she could have been out and rewriting Bush administration press releases for publication in the New York Times].
(Note: Original quote snarkified by 40%)
Arianna Huffington, today:
Sources tell me that Judy Miller is telling friends that she has made a $1.2 million book deal with Simon & Schuster. I’ve heard from senior editors at the publishing house that the deal is still so hush-hush that word of it has not appeared in the memos that circulate among the editorial staff, keeping them updated on pending deals and acquisitions.
Forget patriotism—a book deal is the last refuge of a scoundrel.
