I don't know why I feel the need to be fair to Cheney here, but cmon -- he's not gonna write a letter. He's gonna do his behind-the-scenes thing, which is, frankly, far more effective. He's gonna march into the Oval Office and say, "Sir, when do you plan to pardon our man Scooter?" (And the answer is probably "January, 2009" -- which Scooter probably already knows.)
Well, of course he is going to do his thing behind the scenes, but .. well you are probably right. I just found it offensive on some girly emotional level. LOL
But then I remind myself that Scooter Libby isn't going to jail for outing Plame (unfortunately, and neither are the real perpetrators). He's going to jail because he's a liar who obstructed the investigation - kind of like a cat covering up sh*t in a litter box.
And I don't feel sorry for him no way, nohow. The only thing I'm sorry about is that Cheney and Rove aren't going to jail with him. But I can still dream.
The future is better than the past. Despite the crepehangers, romanticists, and anti-intellectuals, the world steadily grows better because the human mind, applying itself to environment, makes it better. With hands...with tools...with horse sense and science and engineering.
