After hearing the sentence of Scooter Libby my first thought was how insufferable the gloating would be among the liberal bloggers. To be fair, the judge has a history of delivering harsh sentences and he was put into position by the Bush family. (By the way – another African American put into a powerful position by the Bush family.) Seeing as liberals should be happy with the reading of the conviction (30 months in jail and a 250K fine), it seems that liberals finally have a reason to love the Bush family!
Obviously, this sentence was too harsh. In fact, no crime was committed originally since we now know that the actual whistle-blower of Plame was an anti-war ranter. So what was Scooter Libby lying about and obstructing?
What gets me the most are the headlines worded like “Libby Convicted in CIA Leak Case.” The more appropriate headline should be “Libby Convicted in Perjury-Trap Case.”
With Bush’s idiotic response to the immigration ordeal, he indeed owes us another energizing move. The response should be overwhelming to the President to do the only right thing anyone in his position could do and pardon Scooter Libby from pointlessly spending 30 months in jail.
Idiotic Liberal policies have led to easier punishments on hardened criminals. We have judges all over the country giving convicted child molesters months in jail and small probabation charges. We had a bogus case that served no purpose than to appeal to the far-left who feels this qualifies as a sure legacy of corruption connected to the Bush administration.
Libby should be pardoned and it should happen now.
Steps to Plame-Fame!
1.) Use your “classified” desk-job position at the CIA to send your husband on a trip to Africa at the expense of taxpayers.
2.) Have your husband put your alleged “covert” status at risk by writing an op-ed to the NY Times.
3.) Pose for a photo with your husband for Vanity Fair (adding to the careful step of preserving privacy explained in step 2.).
4.) Have your husband write a book about it while in the throws of “liberals-love-victims” slurpery. (And get a six-figure deal on it.)
5.) Encourage Patrick Fitzegerald to move forward with his
investigation perjury-trap EVEN AFTER anti-war mouthpiece; Richard Armitage, informs everyone (behind the scenes) that it was him who “revealed” her name.
6.) Continue to refer to yourself as “covert” after Patrick Fitzgerald announces his indictments on what was to be “Fitzmas Day” and consistently refers to your job status as “classified” (purposely avoiding the term “covert” multiple times.)
7.) After Patrick Fitzgerald indicts NOBODY for revealing your name, he indicts Scooter Libby on a perjury charge.
8.) File a personal lawsuit against members of the Bush administration, testify in front of Congress, and quickly work to finish up your book (which will hopefully do considerably better than your husband’s by the way.)
9.) May 29, 2007 – Get really lucky and have Newsweek’s Michael Isikoff report that Patrick Fitzgerald FINALLY refers to you as a “covert” agent in “new court filings.” (Even though Richard Armitage has NOT been indicted for revealing you and even though the taxpayers paid for an investigation that leads to NOTHING but a phony perjury charge.)
10.) Just 2-days later; on May 31, 2007, announce a lawsuit against the CIA for “unconstituionally interfering with the publication” of your “memoir.”
I’m sure it was a total coincidence that Fitzgerald is now finally; after years and months of investigations, court hearings, and indictment readings, that he; FOR THE FIRST TIME, refers to her status as “covert” just two days before Valerie Plame announces YET ANOTHER lawsuit, this time against the CIA.
“Fair Game” or “Unfair Blame”?
