How Do You Think Mark Felt?

So now we know...

“I am Deep Throat.”

I am Deep Throat!”

“Sit down, boys...”

And now we know. (Yawn)

The man whom Nixon passed over for the appointment to FBI director got his vengeance on his Commander-in-Chief by playing cloak-and-dagger games with a coupla cub reporters.

Bernstein, left, with by-line buddy Woodward, during the leaner but bushier years. Don’t you miss those fat neckties?

And now the world knows the answer to the decades-old mystery.
Bradlee over at the Post has confirmed Felt's claim but Carl Bernstein stuck to his guns Tuesday after Felt’s announcement:

"With all our confidential sources, we agreed not to identify them until their death," he promised, speaking for himself and partner-in-crime Bob Woodward. "Nothing has changed that. No one has released us from any pledge. It is our intention not to identify Deep Throat until his death."

Raise your hand if you care.

UPDATE: Win Ben Stein's Wisdom

The one-time Nixon employee offers some perspective:


Can anyone even remember now what Nixon did that was so terrible?

He ended the war in Vietnam, brought home the POW's, ended the war in the Mideast, opened relations with China, started the first nuclear weapons reduction treaty, saved Eretz Israel's life, started the Environmental Protection Administration. Does anyone remember what he did that was bad?

Oh, now I remember. He lied. He was a politician who lied. How remarkable. He lied to protect his subordinates who were covering up a ridiculous burglary that no one to this date has any clue about its purpose. He lied so he could stay in office and keep his agenda of peace going. That was his crime. He was a peacemaker and he wanted to make a world where there was a generation of peace. And he succeeded.

That is his legacy. He was a peacemaker. He was a lying, conniving, covering up peacemaker. He was not a lying, conniving drug addict like JFK, a lying, conniving war starter like LBJ, a lying conniving seducer like Clinton -- a lying conniving peacemaker. That is Nixon's kharma.
