Libby: One More Twist in the Yellowcake Road

This could be Bush's biggest mistake; this reminds me all too much of the Saturday Night Massacre.

That was the night my Dear Old Dad, a Republican (and one of the good ones), said he knew Nixon was toast.

Loyalty when, taken to its extremes, is nothing more than a twisted character trait and this is where it always leads, wrack and ruin.

Libby: One More Twist in the Yellowcake Road -

So much for, “No man is above the law.”

The chief prosecutor, jury, trial judge — a Republican he himself appointed to the bench. The federal appeals panel. The majority of public opinion. All ignored.

I know, I know. The president was within his constitutional rights commuting Scooter Libby’s sentence for perjury, false statements and obstruction of justice. Article Two, Section 2 and all that. He claimed Libby’s two-and-a-half-year prison sentence was “excessive.”
