Bush burning the constitutionDear President Bush,

Why do you think that Scooter Libby’s sentence needs to be commuted? Why is it you opinion that a man who outed a CIA agent, lied to the FBI, and got convicted for obstruction of justice should serve no jail time?

“I respect the jury’s verdict. But I have concluded that the prison sentence given to Mr. Libby is excessive,” Bush’s statement said. “Therefore, I am commuting the portion of Mr. Libby’s sentence that required him to spend thirty months in prison.

My mom is an addict and she sold drugs. She is in a Texas prison for up to nine years, and her crimes

  • did not hurt the CIA,

  • did not hurt the search for WMD

  • did not damage a CIA front company

  • did not waste FBI time or money.

She sold drugs. Why does she get 9 years and Scooter gets zero?
