The Libby Verdict

So long, Scooter. It’s small consolation to Valerie Plame or the CIA whose agent was outed, but a medium-sized bass—something between a big and little fish—has finally paid the price for the Bush Administration’s perfidy. The optimist in me hopes that it’s merely the first of many convictions—and prison sentences—for this gang of imposters, liars, thieves and murderers.
Anyone who serves this gangster Administration at the cabinet or departmental levels has his or her hands dirty—and deserves to rot behind bars for the rest of their miserable lives. I’d make an exception for Libby, though: In exchange for his testimony against Thug-in-Chief Dick Cheney, I’d let him walk. Heck, I’d even let him keep his pension.

    Meh. Bush will pardon Libby somewhere between mid-November 2008 and mid-January 2009.

    Don’t ask how I know this. I’m a psychic, dammit.

    Agreed. Laws and procedure are just tools or obstacles to Bush, there is no discretion in his behavior. He uses signing statements and emergency appointments as a matter of course. The consonant bureaucrat, he has no shame in what he does, because he’s entitled to, and your opinion doesn’t matter….mine doesn’t matter…nothing matters

    Lord, we have consonant bureaucrats now? This country is going to hell in a handbasket.

    make that: “in exchange for his testimony THAT LEADS TO A CONVICTION”.

    but sometimes I worry: what if dicky goes down, so does chimpy, then their replacements get elected? Sorry I’m so paranoid, having lived through 2 Reagans and 3 Bushes and 2 Cheneys, and 1.5 Nixons who makes ’em all look like angels.

    How is it with so many repugnicans in jail, and or forced out of office, for moral, or ethical reasons,they still get the vote of the “Christian Right”?

    I love your language – it is to the point. I would add that it is important for these murderers to be held accountable. I note that Bush’s crime is far far more serious than the others’ crimes and amounts to high treason against the United States of America. High treason is a capital crime. One can only hope that the next administration has some sense to pursue prosecution so that justice is served and the law upheald.

    At this point there shall be no forgiveness and no mercy. All effort legally possible needs to be expended to ruin these peoples’ lives.

    The other comment left here about how republicans win the votes of the Christian Right – The Christian Right is not Christian at all. Their claim to be Christian increases the severity of their sins by multiple orders of magnitude. They are a deluded bunch and their leaders are actually fully evil. Make no mistake, they will be punished.
