Surprise - the Wall Street Journal editorial page says the Dear Leader should have issued a full pardon for Scooter the Obstructor and describes the whole thing as a "personal tragedy. The WSJ screens their comments - what do you suppose the chances are they'll post mine?
1. The Niger memo was a forgery, and Wilson's accusations are true.
2. The right wing complains constantly about the Marc Rich pardon and uses it to excuse this commutation, but guess who Rich's lawyer was? Wait for it ... Scooter Libby.
UPDATE: 6:45 pm EST - not posted yet, but some of the comments they allowed (all pro-Scooter) are a fucking riot.
Elsewhere, Novakula laments the whole situation and confirms that the reich wing isn't happy Scooter has to face just a little bit of justice. Unless, of course, Bush pardons him on the way out the door.
