Conspiring to get pardons

Frank Rich:

Judge Walton's greatest move was not the 30-month sentence he gave Mr. Libby, a fall guy for higher-ups (and certain to be pardoned to protect their secrets).

The ‘safest’ way to pardon Libby would be to do it when the whole country had the opportunity, at long last, not to hear anymore about George W. Bush, and even then it might not be enough, because there is something like a 5-year statute of limitations and there is Patrick Fitzgerald keeping an eye on things.

    I'm not noticing it either. Seems to me they *are* being assholes to Jews, but only moreso than anybody else if we happen to be in the way. I think that's gneral-purpose assholery, not…
