What a surprise, Bush has commuted "Scooter's" sentence.
"I respect the jury's verdict," Bush said in a statement. "But I have concluded that the prison sentence given to Mr. Libby is excessive. Therefore, I am commuting the portion of Mr. Libby's sentence that required him to spend thirty months in prison."
Perhaps we should buy the man a dictionary, respect and excessive, seem to require further definition.
A spokeswoman for Cheney said simply, "The vice president supports the president's decision."
I think we can replace the word, "supports" to forced, don't you?
It is quite remarkable what this man, Bush, has gotten away with. This being minor in the scheme of things. I'm sure historians will be scratching their heads wondering how it all happened.
The answer of course is, because America allowed it, politicians and citizens alike.
