Deep Throat

The other day at Jawapalooza in D.C. this chick comes over to the table and starts talking to us.

After a few minutes she asks what we're doing there and so I say, "I'm deep throat." For some odd reason she found the Watergate reference offensive. I don't get it.

Deep Throat revealed:

A former FBI official claims he was “Deep Throat,” the long-anonymous source who leaked secrets about President Nixon’s Watergate coverup to The Washington Post, his family said Tuesday.

W. Mark Felt, 91, was second-in-command at the FBI in the early 1970s. His identity was revealed Tuesday by Vanity Fair magazine, and family members said they believe his account is true.

Yeah, I don't find the news that interesting either.

Back in college my Vietnam era professors would spend countless hours debating who Deep Throat really was.

Which was really stupid because everybody knew Linda Lovelace was Deep Throat. I mean, talk about debating the number angels on the head of a pin.......

More Deep Throat than $2 skid row movie theatre:

Dan Riehl with the 'real' news.......

Patterico notices a resemblence......

The Political Teen has a video up of Deep Throat's grandson's statement, although I'm wondering what he is doing watching this filth.... He also tells me that WAPO will probably confirm the story tonight at 5 PM Eastern. Yaaaaaaawn......

Jeff Goldstein has a pretty good roundup here and an even better post on Deep Throat here.

James Joyner who was the object of that young lass' desire at Jawapalooza. He also links the Vanity Fair PDF here.

Rob Porter pretends like he doesn't know who Linda Lovelace is. His Friday posts seem to indicate otherwise.

Citizen Smash wonders why Bernstein won't confirm source. Isn't it obvious? He's married now.

Joe Gandalman has the pic to go along with the story! Seriously, is Joe the only other blogger who finds this more amusing than anything else?

Amen brotha! "Unfortunately, the story is of no interest to anyone under the age of 45"

Right Wing Nuthouse has a pretty good commentary on the thing and even mentions 'swallow'. Ha!

Heh, this guy gets it.
