Novak victim "doing fine"

By Michael J.W. Stickings

WaPo: "The homeless pedestrian who was struck by a car driven by syndicated columnist Robert D. Novak said in a radio interview yesterday that he is 'doing fine,' recovering from a dislocated shoulder."

Just thought you'd like to know.


What a story, though, huh? Bob Novak hits an 86-year-old homeless man with his black Corvette convertible. It couldn't really get any better (now that we know the guy is okay).

Novak claims he didn't know he hit the man -- Don Clifford Liljenquist -- until he was alerted of the incident by a bicyclist. And Liljenquist backs him up: "Yeah, it's possible that he didn't know he hit me. The vehicle was moving at 10 miles per hour or something like that, and the driver might not have seen me, because I rolled off and fell down to the pavement. So, yeah, it's possible that he didn't see me. He wasn't paying attention to his driving."

Yes, the man who outed Valerie Plame and who gets many of his inside scoops from his buddy Karl Rove is a menace behind the wheel.

"He's a very good reporter," said Liljenquist of Novak.

Forget his shoulder. Someone should check his head.
