Easy commute

Surprise, surprise. President Bush has finally decided to step in and save Scooter's butt. While not issuing a full pardon, Dumbya was instead kind enough to commute Mr. Libby's sentence. Sure, he'll still have to cough up $250,000 and spend two years on probation, but at least he won't have to worry about getting shived or having a broomstick shoved up his ass.

Kinda makes you sad, doesn't it.

Truthfully, I could care less about what Libby did or did not do. It's painfully obvious that the guy is an amoral, manipulative political operator. There is, however, a good chance that he was intentionally thrown to the wolves (and subsequently reprieved) to save those further up the ladder from prosecution. Dick Nixon is no doubt observing from the beyond and shaking his head. "You dumb asses. You obviously don't read your history."

Traitorous music:

Nile - Annihilation Of The Wicked
(that includes you, Scoot)

Paul Desmond - Easy Living
(is easy listening)

Napalm Death - Scum
(you suffer... but why?)

Austere - Curio
(distant, dazzling, and delightful)

Curse Of The Golden Vampire - Curse Of The Golden Vampire
(Alec, JKFlesh and the Bug do dey thang)
