Bush commutes the sentence of Lewis Libby, sparing him jail time. Rightwing blogs which celebrate this will no doubt miss the irony altogether.
Thanks to all the readers who pointed out that Libby had his sentence commuted rather than receiving a pardon. I should try harder to proofread before hitting the post button.
Question – is the president arguing that people who commit perjury and obstruct justice should not go to jail, or only the right kind of people? Maybe someone should ask Tony Snow.
Either way this was a great, great day for defense attorneys.
