Libby walks alone

By Libby Spencer

Refusing to back down in the face of death threats, presumably from Bush's oh so "moral" conservative base, Judge Walton has issued his verdict and he's keeping to the hard line of accountability. Scooter Libby must go to directly to jail and since it looks like his feckless hero is not going to give him a get out of jail free card, he's expected to begin serving his sentence, pending appeal, within six to eight weeks.

There's a certain poetic justice to Libby being sent up the river by an appointee of Daddy Bush, bringing the betrayal of his loyalty full circle. The only thing wrong with this picture is Libby will be taking the perp walk by himself. If justice had been truly served, he would be joined on that lonely journey by Cheney, but Scooter plays the useful fool to the end.

I kind of feel sorry for his kids. You don't get to choose your parents, but I have no sympathy for Scooter. He should be rotting in jail. If he truly cared about our country he would have rolled and delivered us from the evil clutches of at least one of our reckless overlords.
