    unconfirmed reports say he claimed "a high-level official told me i had hit a cyclist... but it was common knowledge that I hit a cyclist, so no crime was committed."

    He couldn't have been sprayed across the windshield too badly if he only had minor injuries. I think there's a little exaggeration going on here.

    What was really funny, was that Novak was driving a Vette. A Corvette and a cane, for his little limp.

    Interesting how people speculate on this incident according to political ideology.

    Who is speculating ?

    From the article :

    "the victim was taken to George Washington University hospital with minor injuries."

    I won't believe a word of it until I see it in the National Enquirer.

    I wasn't just talking about you, but yes you are speculating that it's an "exaggeration." Didn't you hear the story about T.O. helping the ESPN writer after he put a hole in the windshield of a car when it hit him? That guy got up and walked away from it. You have no idea what really happened, neither does anyone else.

    My only point is that is you are left-leaning, Novak hit the guy, who was splayed over the front of his car, then backed over him six more times for good measure. If you're a right winger, the guy probably accidentally stubbed his toe on Novak's tire which Novak didn't notice. Somewhere in between is the truth but I just found it interesting that your political outlook affects how you speculate on this non-political incident.

    Novak's like 93 years old. I've seen people his age drive through people's yards without realizing it. He probably thought the dude he hit was a newspaper blowing across his windshield. In all seriousness, if he hit someone and took off, it's the slammer baby! You simply can't do that. What is it with popular people and hit-n-runs?

    Bingo. Did the guy even stop and get out of his car, or is Novak saying he didn't know anything? Thus, the witness is totally lying about the cyclist.
    Reminds me, one time I was rear-ended at a light, just slightly. I figured I'd better just check make sure it was nothing. Wasn't and got back in my car. Driving away, I thought, what an AA-hole for not even getting out of his car, do the courtesy of at least opening your door and standing up. So, what does that make Novak?

    Novak's in his 70s. The guy he hit is in his 80s. Happened about 3 blocks from where I work as it happens (though of course I didn't see it. The only other knowledge I have is that guys at work say 'good night' by saying 'look out for Novak' now.)

    The scariest thing about the whole mess to me is the fact that Novak drives a corvette.

    This has nothing to do with age. This is just about Bob Novak in a Corvette. Just the visual.

    By the way, the guy he hit said Novak was doing about 10 miles per hour, and that he just sort of slid off the hood, so it's possible he didn't see him. It was in type, so I can't tell if he was being sarcastic. He did also say something like "Robert Novak? Wow, everybody knows who he is!" when told who had hit him.

    Novak was diagnosed with a Brain Tumor this weekend, perhaps that figured into this accident.

    The Liberals love to justify things but they won't let a little tumor justify a nasty Conservative getting into an accident.
