Good for Scooter Libby

Fox reports that President Bush has commuted Lewis Libby's sentence so he won't have to go to prison.

He doesn't get off without penalties. But as usual any ranking Democrat within microphone range has had to assert their asininity.

I'll say this for Ted Kennedy - he more or less kept his mouth shut about the time the Dems were trying to screw Clarence Thomas. He knew that with his history it might not be a good idea.

Not so Hillary Clinton, the spouse of the man who pulled all sorts of pardon stunts on his last day in office. But she's a Democrat, so she knows the press has her back covered as long as it looks like she might beat the Republicans.

In a way Bush's low poll numbers are a sort of relief. There isn't much to lose, and if you're going to get negative press no matter what you do you might just as well do what you want.
