Scooter Libby is going to jail

CNN reports that Scooter Libby must go to jail. The judge just ruled Libby cannot stay free while he appeals his case. That means that the issue of Bush pardoning Scooter is now ripe. Either Bush pardons Scooter now, or Scooter spends the rest of the Bush term, pending appeal, in jail. The GOP base won’t stand for Scooter doing time, but how much more damage can Bush take, is Bush willing to take, to his approval ratings? So much for the Bush administration being a “beyond reproach” alternative to the Clinton administration.

Joe is a DC-based political consultant with over twenty-five years of experience at both the state and federal level.

In addition, he has a Masters in Public Administration from Lehigh University and received his B.A. from the University of New Hampshire. Joe also has a fun dog, Petey, a worthy successor to Boomer, who got Joe through eight years of Bush and Cheney. Joe likes to think he is a world class athlete having finished the 2005 Chicago Marathon in the time of 4:10. He has completed six other marathons as well -- and is still determined to break the four hour mark.
