Deep Throat Is Ill?

Supposedly Woodward & Bernstein will reveal DT's name only when he dies, and he's gravely ill now:

We'll all know one day very soon, however. Bob Woodward, a reporter on the team that covered the Watergate story, has advised his executive editor at the Washington Post that Throat is ill. And Ben Bradlee, former executive editor of the Post and one of the few people to whom Woodward confided his source's identity, has publicly acknowledged that he has written Throat's obituary.

Over at NRO's Corner, they link to a piece suggesting that Chief Justice William Rehnquist might be Throat.

Now, I realize this is in somewhat bad taste -- the man being so ill -- but the theory is as good as any of the other Throat theories I've read. (The piece also mentions Woodward & Scott Armstrong's book The Brethren, about the Supreme Court; the suggestion being that Woodward got his access for that book because he'd already cultivated Rehnquist as a source earlier.)

And I don't know of any other high-level Nixon officials who are currently very sick.
