Why do I have the feeling he won't be serving any time in a Federal pound-me-in-the-ass prison?

I'll be amazed if he does 18 months. Sad to say.

Federal laws require serving

Federal laws require serving 80% of your sentence.

The only way Scooter gets out of this is a pardon.

From Mary Matalin's swooning letter to the judge...

Neither Scooter nor I joined the administration as a career enhancement, but because we believe in public service. Our service put great strain on our respective families, especially following the events of 9/11...

"He's a loyal patriot, but Osama bin Laden made him crack! He gave up a CIA asset because of the pressure!"

And the Jabbering Skull signed his name to this piece of crap. How the mighty, &c.

Someone was just telling me the White House is having trouble filling positions at the moment. I'll see if I can run down more info.

Scooter was convicted of obstruction of justice.

The reason Scooter obstructed justice was to prevent himself and his boss from being convicted of treason.

Are the people who wrote letters supporting Scooter...supporting Treason?

Do we need to go into Fred Thompson's involvement in this yet, or shall we save it until after he gets nominated?

...but he is such a nice guy, he should be pardoned! [sarc]

No matter that his obstruction may have blocked the process to
a possible prosecution of the people responsible for the death of thousands of our soldiers, and tens of thousands of innocent citizens of another country. Personally I don't see how he can live with himself, even if he does receive a pardon.

The pardon will be smooth as a "mickey" in a mobsters glass

I heard this really ridiculous talking head today (one of those with a title running below them that boasts something like (Fox News producer's grandmother says nuclear power is safer than windmill power), I heard him say that Scooter Libby's pardon "will probably come at a time when the people are distracted. Like on the Fourth of July or Christmas".

Do politicans really think we're so addle brained we wouldn't notice a pardon like this because we're all gleefully dizzy with joy during the holidays? Perhaps GW's advisors are right now telling him to whip up a pardon Thanksgiving Day because they figure we're all asleep on the sofa after all the dressing and pies. That would make sense...

This will make any futiure holidays really exciting. I think I'll start taking bets around the watercooler. Which holiday do you think will be the one chosen for Libby's pardon?

Remand. Now.

Scooter will wind up in stir until at least January 2009. The only question is when he goes in.

(Yet another felony conviction for a GOPer in the Bush administration. What a shock.)
