Liberty Cried

When Dick Cheney's henchman err... Former Chief of Staff... Scooter Libby was convicted of obstructing a federal investigation and lying about matters of national security, the husband of the CIA undercover operative whose life Libby put at risk felt justice had been done. Joe Wilson, whose wife Valerie Plame's identity as an agent was leaked to the press by Libby, told reporters, "We see this as a reaffirmation that we are a nation of laws, we live in a democracy. The verdict shows no man is above the law."

I can't help wondering what Wilson thinks now that Bush has picked up one of his presidential pens and commuted Libby's 30 month sentence. It appears we are not a nation of laws and we are no longer a democracy. Bush's act proves that the administrations fall guys are in fact above the law. Ambassador Wilson now says Bush is "corrupt to the core." Do ya' think?
