Scooter Walks

Lewis "Scooter" Libby had his jail time commuted today by his buddy, George Bush.

I think Senator (and presidential candidate) Barack Obama's comment says it pretty well.

“This decision to commute the sentence of a man who compromised our national security cements the legacy of an Administration characterized by a politics of cynicism and division, one that has consistently placed itself and its ideology above the law. This is exactly the kind of politics we must change so we can begin restoring the American people’s faith in a government that puts the country’s progress ahead of the bitter partisanship of recent years.”
