That’s fucking hilarious. Oh boy oh boy would I ever love to hear the discussions currently going on about this in the upper circles of power, and especially between Cheney and the President. One thing is certain: Bush is going to come under enormous pressure to pardon Libby. If he does, he looks very, very bad, and probably prolongs the political agony. If he doesn’t, then a) he pisses Cheney off to no end; and b) he sends a signal to all his underlings that he won’t cover for them when they lie to cover for him and his monumentally inept administration.
