Scooter Guilty; Cheney "Disappointed"

I laughed out loud when I read this morning that Dick Cheney was "saddened and disappointed." I, too, was disappointed--that he's still breathing. But I digress.

I wondered what Cheney was disappointed about--that Libby did what he did (doubtful, since Cheney knew damned well he was doing it), that he got caught, or that the jury found him guilty? Or, on a totally unrelated topic, that his daughter still prefers pie to cake?

However, my guess is, it's a combination of numbers two and three. This administration has become the living embodiment of the saying "nothing is wrong until you get caught." There's no right or wrong to these people--only punishment and reward. What a terrible example these people have set for the next generation (who are already cynical and disrespectful enough). And these bastards have the nerve to wave the flag after they've sullied it so? The Christian right dares to invoke God after they've supported these parasites for the last seven years? What a joke--what a sick satire it's all become.

And now the question comes up--will Bush pardon Libby?

Are you kidding? The question should be--"how fast?"

It's only a matter of time till Cheney's eating wet food from a bowl on the kitchen floor!

Bush must pardon Libby or he will squeal on Cheney and cause uncomfortable facts to come to light.
Bush and Cheney believe too much time and money have been wasted on this case already. Nevermind the fact that Months and Millions were wasted investigating Clintons land deals.

Not to mention the thousands of lives that were wasted in Iraq. (Oh, but that's OK because they're from a lower socio-economic echelon...)

I didn't mean to leave out the Iraq debaucle. Those soldiers are still being told they are fighting for our freedom.
Alfred Tennyson's words are true today: Forward the light brigade! Was there a man dismayed? Not so the soldiers knew someone had blundered. Theirs not to make reply, Theirs not to reason why, Theirs but to do and die.
As NBC found out this week, the Iraqi's want us to stay forever. sure so we can keep the diffeent factions apart. My contention has always been that if we leave today or a hundred years from now they will go back to like they were before. So let's leave now!!!

He'd almost have to be wouldn't he? That poor guy's been screwed more than a pledge in a sling at a frat party.

For all intents and purposes, he might as well be. The Administration will disown him as quickly (despite their noble talk). But not before they pardon him to take the stink off themselves.
