Ladies and gentleman, cast aside all of your preconceived notions about social justice and wipe away your crocodile tears for the downtrodden and tune in Monday for an appeal to President Bush on behalf of his faithful servant, Scooter. I’m serious.
I was wishy-washy about Libby being pardoned. However, I have changed my mind because Bush has decided that more of us in this “prison nation” need to be incarcerated. Except of course, government officials, such as Libby, who need to be pardoned.
What else does a lame, limping duck have to offer the’warrior’ that fell on his sword for the good of the party?
Just pardon the guy and go after Fitzgerald for pursuing the case and trying to get anyone, after he already knew who revealed Plame’s identity and that no crime was committed. Maybe Fitzgerald could find a job replacing the D.A. who handled the Duke case, since they are so much alike.
Woody, with all due respect, you test the patience of the saints. There is no comparison between a DA who inappropriately charges a bunch of drunken frat boys and a member of our esteemed government who ‘outs’ a covert agent.
Pokey wonders why Libby is going to jail for being convicted of lying about the NON-CRIME (Plame leak) that Richard Armitage committed. WhatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s worse is that the Patrick Fitzgerald investigating the NON-CRIME knew Richard Armitage committed the NON-CRIME before starting the investigation of the NON-CRIME.
But after investigating the NON-CRIME for more that a year he found that some most all people remembered their year old conversations somewhat differently.
Sacrificial goat, perhaps?
Pokey, Woody do yourself a favor an d read the pleadings in the case rather than the ridiculous “talking Points” that spew from a White House and GOP HQ that wouldn’t know truth if it bit them in the ass!
Big Al: Ive set my alarm for 7am Monday to read your post. Better be up by then, pal.

I’m sure that you meant Fitzgeraled, the prosecutor, for the last part of your sentence. That is a completely valid comparison. They both had “greater causes” that they couldn’t prove; but, for a “win,” they went after innocent people and caused ruin to their lives.
Libby was only guilty of having a bad memory after a year on a case which had already been solved. Pursuing him in light of the facts is as corrupt as pursuing the students at Duke.
