Go to Prison, Judge Says
So Scooter Libby has to report to prison. Judge Reggie Walton gave him up to a couple of months to do so, and that's plenty of time for the Bush regime to figure out a way to pardon him.
My only problem with Walton's decision today is that he agreed with Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald that Libby "is not a danger to the community." He's more dangerous than a piece of yellowcake.
The unfortunate fact, as I noted a short time ago, is that Libby's not a flight risk.
Anyway, Walton also said, according to ABC News, that there is "not a likelihood it [his conviction] will be overturned."
Don't be too sure of that. The "Free Libby" crowd is just getting started.
