Quotes on Scooter Libby's commutation

Reaction to Bush's Libby decision - Yahoo! News

Here's how you decide who NOT to vote for:

1. Rudy Giuliani (running, and running as fast as he can away from his failure after 9/11): "After evaluating the facts, the president came to a reasonable decision and I believe the decision was correct."

2. Fred Thompson (says he's not running, but he sure looks like he is): "While for a long time I have urged a pardon for Scooter, I respect the president's decision. This will allow a good American, who has done a lot for his country, to resume his life."

3. Roy Blunt (not running, but what the hell?): "President Bush did the right thing today in commuting the prison term for Scooter Libby. The prison sentence was overly harsh and the
punishment did not fit the crime."

Let's wait to see three things tomorrow.

1. Will this story be forgotten and/or disregarded by the evening news tomorrow?
2. How will Congress react? I think impeachment, not for this action, but for all of Bush's other actions, ought to be "put back on the table."
3. What will the other dillhole Repugnicans say?
