Scooter Who?

Our local daily, The Bulletin, published an editorial that called the Libby commutation "no big thing."

Well, yes, now that you mention it, The Bulletin is a Republican paper.

However, in a way Bush's action for Libby isn't a big thing: it's just the way things are with the executive branch. The Ruling Party is above the law: the law is for the rest of us. The Party knows that sometimes the law has to be avoided or even subverted in order to Keep Our Country Strong. It's been this way for a long time, and it doesn't really matter which party is officially ruling (you understand, I'm saying there are two wings of the same party, that's all). The executive branch is the boss, the locomotive. Congress is just the caboose.

The Bulletin also mentioned that Libby's career is over. Yeah, like Eliot Abrams', John Poindexter's, Ollie North's...crap, even Nixon was quickly "rehabilitated" after his faux pas. Being a conservative and getting busted is almost a smart career move!

"Being a conservative and getting busted is almost a smart career move!"

And incredibly profitable.
Golden Rule, right?
