I think that's why they loaded up on him. I'm sure Rove dangled lots of nice payoffs to him if he was faced with a "Martha Stewart" charge - a few months in Club Fed, followed by a fat corporate job with some Saudi oil company, the people Bush and his men actually work for. In fact, a "Martha Stewart Charge" was the big rumor on the AM goosestepper channels all day today, believed so heartily by the rightwingers that Limbaugh was braying on his radio show today about how this was a waste of time - "two years for a misdemeanor! A travesty!" he shouted. Well, looks like he got some bad dope (pun intended) on the story. Instead of Club Fed, Scooters looking at 30 years of a bum-jammin' good time. Given the secretiveness of the Bush crime syndicate, its a smart move - its the only way to break the case on the other guys - get Libby to roll. Now watch the fascist media machine go after Fitzgerald - gonna be a hard target, given that he is a Republican.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
