Right Winger a Serial Dinger

7/24/2008 2:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Robert NovakRobert Novak, the conservative columnist who hosted a CNN show on politics, is a safety risk in Washington, D.C., at least according to a lawsuit we turned up.

As you know, Novak struck a pedestrian yesterday in D.C. while driving his Corvette. By the way, apparently the guy isn't doing so well.

Back in 2004, Novak was cruising along when, according to the suit, he "failed to obey a red traffic light ... entered into the intersection of Pennsylvania Avenue and 6th St. at a high rate of speed and violently struck the motor vehicle being operated by Plaintiff Chad Clarke."

The suit, which settled in 2006, claims Clarke suffered "severe, painful and permanent injuries of body and mind."

Clarke sued for $100,000. The terms of settlement were not disclosed.

What a great way to redistribute the wealth! I hope none of you have an accident. If you hit me, you better hide your assets. I'll be looking for my lottery winnings!!!!

So.... shall we endeavor to uncover all the lame-brained things left wing commentators have done? No? Oh, I forgot: every aspect, every facet of the media is liberal.

Novak is a bitter, angry and senile old fool. Of course that description fits most republicans.

Loser!!! Charge the Jackass! He should be charged for failing to grow the hell up and drive an oldsmobile or something more age appropriate. Is this fool too old to drive????

Just as he displayed no concern about who would be hurt (or killed) by outing Valerie Plame, so this befuddled right wing douche displays no concern about who he hits on the street. Typical "I'm-republican-so-I'm-above-the-law" idiocy...

You people obviously are a bit clueless how the real world works. People get hit in an accident, no matter how minor it is and some people claim injury and sue, because why should they have to work. The insurance company settles the lawsuit wihtout going to court to avoid paying the bloodsucking lawyers. Easy as pie.
Working in the insurance industry, I can tell you that there are accidents where this NO damage to the vehicles and people sue and win...

It's a scam, this means nothing at all.

Except to liberals who believe that because this guy was in an accident then certainly all conservatives are evil. LOL. Hypocritical much?

ROBERT NOVAK IS AN ARROGANT JERK!! HE HAS THAT "BETTER THAN THOU" ATTITUDE WHEN HE IS ON TV..

ISN'T HE THE ONE THAT BLEW THE WHISTLE ON VALERIE PLAME BEING A SECRET AGENT??? AND DIDN'T HE GET FIRED FROM HIS POLITICAL SHOW ON CNN FOR THAT REASON??? YOU ARE RIGHT, NO ETHICS, NO MORALS, NO BRAINS IS A GOOD DESCRIPTION OF NOVAK..

NOTHING WRONG WITH THE OLD GEEZER DRIVING A CORVETT...BUT FROM HIS DRIVING RECORD, IT SOUNDS LIKE IT IS TIME TO PUT IT IN THE CORVETT GRAVEYARD AND GET HIMSELF AN ELECTRIC CAR..BETTER YET, A HORSE AND BUGGY!!

TO THE WRITER ASKING ABOUT JOHN EDWARDS LOVE CHILD..YOU ARE A JERK..AND I'LL BET YOU FALL WELL BELOW WHAT THE NORMAL I.Q. TEST IS!!

I HOPE THAT HE LOSES HIS LICENSE FOR A LONG TIME..BUT LIKE HULK HOGAN'S SON NICK SERVING JAIL TIME, THE JERK WILL BE BACK ON THE ROAD CRASHING INTO PEOPLE..
