Andrew Sullivan describes the new food chain:

To recap: the food-chain is Clark or "X" blabbing to Washington reporters off-the-record; said reporters spilling to Drudge; Drudge to the blogs; then the Brits get to write about an "Internet scandal," which loops back to Drudge. And now ... Imus. Dizzy yet?
