Cheney Shafts Scooter Again

When Scooter Libby's trial lawyer chose to read a letter calling for leniency in his clients sentencing, he might have considered the author first. Considering recent events, a letter from Paul Wolfowitz that endorses your good character is maybe not such a good choice. Maybe he should have read the letter from Rumsfeld? I am sure that was a real tear jerker. Henry "Love Machine" Kissinger also authored a letter on his behalf. The cynic in me says that this is just the thank you he gets for taking one for the team.

They released over 150 letters of support after the sentencing yesterday. That might be a little surprising but the biggest shocker is that the boss he took a dive for didn't bother to send a letter from his office to supprt him. Dick Cheney has done nothing to make me think he is a nice guy but this is a huge snub from an administration that prides itself so much on rewarding loyalty. If I were Scooter, I'd get on the phone with Fitzgerald and start spilling the beans on that son of a bitch right now looking for a reduced sentence. If he thought the Veep's office fucked him hard just wait til the boys on the cell block find out there's a guy named Scooter around.

I wholeheartedly agree. And I was disappointed Gonzo didn't "resign" over Memorial Day weekend. From a PR standpoint it made perfect sense. Perhaps they will wait for July 4 or Labor Day.

I am sticking to my guns on the AG. He goes nowhere til GW vacates the white house.

I am actually kind of pissed that Libby was the best they could do in this case. I feel for the guy in a way because he obviously is taking the fall for Cheney and maybe even Bush. I imagine he'll be pardoned but not until the whole thing has died down again.

Maybe if he can prove that he has an "undisclosed medical condition" he can serve his sentence from his giant Beverly Hills mansion.

Scooter should've had Paris Hilton's lawyer defend him.

(PS - Dick is sooo dirty. Double entendre only somewhat intended).

Thirdworst: I laughed so hard on that last one that I had to go clean myself up in the bathroom.

You know because Dr. Pepper came out of my nose... hey wait.. what did you think I meant..
