Begging Libby’s Pardon


Now that Scooter Libby has been sentenced to 30 months in jail for falling on his sword, the only question is whether he’s going to be pardoned before or after he serves even a single day.

My money is on his being pardoned before he serves any time at all — but only if he manages to get bail while his lawyers try an appeal.

Speaking of his lawyers, it’s not too late to contribute to the guy’s legal defense fund. The Libby Legal Defense Trust needs your money more now than ever. For one thing, Fred Thompson is a member of the fund’s advisory committee. Help raise some money for Libby so Thompson can devote full time to the presidential race, would you please? Now? So do it already.
