And Justice For None…
Lewis “Scooter” Libby had his sentence commuted today by President Bush, and our Justice System took another kick to the groin. President Bush said in a statement to the Press, “I have concluded that the prison sentence given to Mr. Libby is excessive.” Excessive? What the fuck?
In a previous post I mentioned Libby begging and pleading for “Justice.” Well, I guess he got it. What is even left to say about this Administration?
Sycophants around the Nation gathered at their favorite dives to share in a Milwaukee’s Best and a couple of Pickled Eggs in honor of “their hero who was ‘unjustly convicted’.” It matters little to them the presiding Judge in the case was a Republican, appointed by Bush I, or that two of the three Judges on the Appellate Court were also appointed by Republicans. Nope, this was a “Liberal Conspiracy” to bring down an “Innocent Man.”
In his refusal to delay Libby’s sentence, U.S. District Judge Reggie B. Walton cited Libby’s “overwhelming guilt.” Yet, morons everywhere exclaimed the virtue of Libby and deemed this nothing more than a “Liberal Witch Hunt.” It is truly sad to watch Serfs celebrate the Royalty getting away with murder. It truly is.
For those that dismissed this case as “No Big Deal”, it is now known that Valerie Plame was indeed a Covert Agent within the CIA when her identity was leaked. I guess I must be ignorant, but I thought revealing a covert CIA agent’s identity was Treason, and that Treason was punishable by Life Imprisonment or even Death. All Libby got was a measly two and a half years for blockading the Investigation and protecting the real culprit, Vice-President Dick Cheney.
But the Right will celebrate tonight because they, and let’s be honest here, are fucking idiots. They think the Bush Administration is made up of people “just like them”, just a bunch of “Regular Joe’s” hanging out having a Brew; oblivious to the fact that the Bushies are the very “Elitists” they espouse to hate. To contrast;
In August of 2000, Oliver Cruz was executed in Texas while Bush was still Governor. Cruz had an I.Q. between 64-83 and was considered on his best day to be “Borderline Intelligent”, which means if his I.Q. were a few points lower he’d be considered “Mentally Handicapped.”
People from all over the world beseeched Gov. Bush to stop the execution, but Bush’s spokeswoman Linda Edwards said Bush was leaving Cruz’s fate in the hands of the Jury and that he would agree with their decision. Did you read that part? I’ll repeat it; he would agree with their decision.
Ain’t that a mother fucker? Libby’s two years for participating in Treason is “excessive”, but a man who had the intelligence of a child got a needle.
I guess you “Average Joe” Reps better be extra careful, Bush obviously has little sympathy for “Retards.” Unless of course you’re willing to take one for the “Big Gipper.”
