Pardon my trolling, but change that thread-tile "P" to a "H" and you've got yourself a porn movie.

I know this probably doesn't make much of a difference to you but Bush didn't pardon Libby, he commuted his jail sentence.

He still has a felony conviction and will lose his ability to practise law. He still has to pay the $250K fine.

I know this doesn't extract the pound of flesh after which you have lusted, but the guy isn't getting off scott-free.

I do think the entire Valerie Flamme investigation was a ridiculous partisan circus the once again demonstrated that if a Special Prosecutor is appointed and spend millions of tax-payer dollars, come hell or hig water, there will be an indictment.

However, I don't think the jury was anymore political than any other, and neither was the judge. Libby had excellent legal representation and he was convicted. The president should not have interceded, unless he plans on interceding in a whole lot more cases. Of course, he does not.

Correct. It doesn't make any difference whatsoever to me.

Was I lusting after a pound of flesh???

I don't see what was partisan about it. But I also don't see what was particularly partisan about Ken Starr's futile attempts to bring the rule of law to the Clinton White House.

And since the Democrats let Clinton off the hook for lying under oath, I don't see any particular reason that Bush shouldn't also let Libby off the hook.

Goody for you oral - but I trust you are capable of, at least, understanding the distinction.

Were you?

My guess is that you probably were, but surely you can appreciate that the "you" I used was not directed at any individual.

Well then you are opthomologically challenged. At least both your left and right eyes are equally challenged.

And since the Democrats let Clinton off the hook for lying under oath, I don't see any particular reason that Bush shouldn't also let Libby off the hook.

Again, good for your sense of fair play. You are wrong, but not in a biased way.

Yes. I posted that just as the story was breaking, before I had fully comprehended just what was going on.

Not really.

As far as I can see, the prosecution, verdict, and sentence were all fair. But after the Clinton debacle, I find it hard to see why I should care if a Republican breaks the law.

I certainly harbor no ill will towards Libby (or Rove, Cheney or Bush for that matter).
