Bush grants amnesty to...Scooter Libby

I guess since President Bush couldn't give 12 million illegal immigrants amnesty (since his own party abandoned him), the "Decider" decided to do the next best thing:

Grant amnesty to Scooter Libby.

Oh, the poor guy has to pay a $250,000 fine. Waaaahhhh! His defense fund will surely pay for that. The guy isn't out one solitary dime, I'm sure. His family has suffered.

What about Joe Wilson and Valerie Plame? Haven't they suffered. Remember, Bush said he'd get to the bottom of the leak and fire those involved. He hasn't done a darned thing (except for stonewall and lie).

Scooter got a 'get out of jail free' card. Tit-for-tat. You scratch my back and I'll scratch yours.

Two things come to mind.
  1. Since Bush has deemed that the punishment didn't fit the crime, and no court has yet determined that the jury didn't follow the law, the law needs to be changed so that Scooter's "sentence" is applicable to all people convicted of the felony of obstruction of justice. This is favoritism at its finest.
  2. Call your congressional representatives and demand that they either impeach Bush and Cheney or they're fired. They could further bring criminal charges for a host of offenses.
It's really that simple, as Ross Perot might say.

The rule of law has been forever tarnished by President Bush and members of his administration. For that, they deserve prison time.
