But were you not one of the many who had the hangman's noose out for Karl Rove in this 'leak' business only to discover it wasn't Rove at all?

Would that be Bush's Dick Cheney? Is that why Edwards got a nipple ringy?

Libby Sentencing Comments

I saw this posted today as addenda to the Paris Hilton Circus. It is comments made by the Libby Judge regarding all those Character References send in by Bork, Rummy & Co.

Dershowitz of Harvard and Robert H. Bork, the former Supreme Court nominee.

The judge, Reggie B. Walton of Federal District Court in Washington, said he would be pleased to see similar efforts for defendants less famous than Mr. Libby, the former chief of staff to Vice President Dick Cheney.

“The court trusts,” Judge Walton wrote, in a footnote longer than the order itself, that the brief for Mr. Libby “is a reflection of these eminent academics’ willingness in the future to step up to the plate and provide like assistance in cases involving any of the numerous litigants, both in this court and throughout the courts of our nation, who lack the financial means to fully and properly articulate the merits of their legal positions.”

“The court,” he added, “will certainly not hesitate to call for such assistance from these luminaries.”

You guys don't know shit, you live in an invented world. Rove testified to the grand jury that he had also leaked Plame's name to the press, which is why he was not indicted for perjury. He should have been indicted under the law that prohibits it. Bush stated he was going to fire anyone caught leaking to the press. When Rove was exposed, Bush said "nevermind!"

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

Just look at those pillars of wisdom and moral rectitude, Rumsfield, Bolton, Matalin, Wolfowitz who weighed in on his behalf......

The whole thing brought to my mind the some remarks of Hunter S Thompson on Richard Nixon's funeral:

"If the right people had been in charge of Nixon's funeral, his casket would have been launched into one of those open-sewage canals that empty into the ocean just south of Los Angeles. He was a swine of a man and a jabbering dupe of a President. He was so crooked that he needed servants to help him screw his pants on every morning. Even his funeral was illegal. He was queer in the deepest way. His body should have been burned in a trash bin."

Full article:
Hunter S. Thompson: "He Was a Crook"

So, then, what will happen to "Scooter" now?

Will he get pardoned, or will he go to prison and get ridden a lot?

What will he tell his father moped and his mother Vespa?

Ah, he will have his Uncle Harley in prison to keep him company

And maybe Honda will come to visit him, along with Uncle Puch and cousin Husqvarna.
