Shouts, guffaws, groans and screams will forever follow George the Lesser Bush in granting executive clemency to Scooter Libby. All that really needs to be said about it here is that this is just another irresponsible abuse of power. Being a Republican in America today means never accepting blame or punishment for misdeeds.
Shrub let Scooter out of jail, leaving only the $250,000 fine, which he knows his cronies will pay.
Shrub says, "I respect the jury's verdict," immediately adding, "But I have concluded that the prison sentence given to Mr. Libby is excessive."
In other words, he does not respect the jury's verdict, or the judicial system, or personal responsibility.
It's either bad genes or his parents didn't raise him right. George the Lesser is, yet again, a disgrace.
