Bush Keeps Libby Out of the Clink
Remember George W. Bush’s pre-election promises to clean up what he saw as corruption of the Clinton era?
Already this administration held the dubious distinction of most corrupt in my memory. Now he’s granted clemency to Scooter Libby, shifting his prison sentence from 30 months to zero.
This is the same president who said he would bring the leaker to justice. But even one day behind bars would apparently offend the sensibilities of Cheney’s good friend Libby.
Some anti-corruption president, huh? What a lovely legacy.
