Bob Novak, already under siege for leaking the name of a CIA operative, cussed at fellow commentator James Carville and stormed off the set during a taping of "Inside Politics" today. Click here for video of the exchange. This article notes that CNN correspondent Ed Henry had let Novak know earlier that he was going to ask questions regarding Novak's role in leaking Valerie Plame's name. While Novak may have succeeded in keeping mum about his role in the dismal outing of a CIA operative, it looks like it has probably cost him his lucrative TV gig. I'm sure FOX is already making Novak an offer he just can't refuse...

Bob Novak is an E-V-I-L SOB! He's one of the right-wing pundits that just turns your stomach. His presence in the room is enough to make milk curdle.He isn't known as the "Prince of Darkness" for nothing, you know.
