Scooter Libby Ain't Going To Jail

President George W. Bush's decision to commute Lewis "Scooter" Libby's jail sentence is both fair and the right thing to do. After the judge declared the sentencing of Libby, the Extreme Left Wing Bloggers and pundits celebrated and declared their self-satisfaction that "soon, Libby would be behind bars,Whooooo-Hoooooo!"

Once again, these Lefties jumped the gun, played their cards too soon and have a momentary explosive premature celebration only for it to come back and slap them in the face. Once again we have the Lefties displaying another of their shining examples of counting their chickens before they hatch. Nobody performs this feat of an ingratiating free-fall into egotism better than the Rabid Left Wingers! It's fun and humorous to observe their behavior, witnessing their crash into their bottomless pit of hatred, descending even deeper into a mental state of Bush Derangement Syndrome.

Friends, I'm not talking about your traditional, more Centrist and reasonable Democrats here, so please don't take offense. This is directed at the foaming-at-the-mouth crowd of your party, those at who have teetered upon and jumped beyond the boundaries of Severe Liberalism. The ones infected and fully diseased with Bush Derangement Syndrome and "Liberal=Good, Everything Else=Bad" mentality...the LeftTard Zombies who will never recover any sense of fairness, accountability or responsibility; let alone apply the standard they apply to others to themselves.

Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald knew, before the Libby trial even started, that is was Richard Armitage who disclosed Valerie Plame's CIA connection. We know Plame's husband Joe Wilson lied to the Senate investigation Committee in his testimony. We know that Plame was not a covert or undercover agent. We know that Plame is the one who suggested and internally lobbied for her husband for the Niger job. Conflict of interest or political nepotism, anyone?

We know Plame wasn't covert or undercover by the CIA's own definition:

    Plame was never a so-called deep-cover NOC (Non-Official Cover), he said, meaning the agency did not create a complex cover story about her education, background, job, personal life and even hobbies and habits that would stand up to intense scrutiny by foreign governments. "[NOCs] are on corporate rolls, and if anybody calls the corporation, the secretary says, 'Yeah, he works for us,'" says Rustmann. "The degree of backstopping to a NOC's cover is a very good indication of how deep that cover really is." (1)

Never mind that Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald said:

    "...we have not made any allegation that Mr. Libby knowingly, intentionally outed a covert agent. We have not charged that. And so I'm not making that assertion." (2)

I wrote about the above in May. We know that every morning Plame jumped in her car and drove to CIA headquarters and performed her daily job as a paper pusher. What covert or undercover agent leaves their home and drives to CIA headquarters? What covert or undercover agent would risk their own covert status by parking their car in the CIA parking lot or ramp? Anyone wanting to follow or tail Plame's daily drive to the CIA would reach the conclusion of whom she is employed.

Bush can pop his approval ratings up back into the 70% range by doing the following:

1) Invite Scooter to Camp David over the Independence Day Holiday,
2) Be seen by the press fishing on your boat and golfing with Scooter,
3) When the press asks you about commuting his sentence, Bush replies to the press, "I commuted his sentence only to piss off the uber-Liberal Lefties," and then laugh, waving to the press as he and Scooter get back in the golf cart or boat and speed away.

Libby committed no underlying crime. His trial was a Liberal witch hunt for anyone connected to the White House that would - in the most fervent and desperate wishes of the Libs - lead to a connect-the-dots to Vice President Dick Cheney so they could go after after Cheney. Whatever it take to trump up and fabricate "realities" that don't exist, right Lefties?

Libby did say there were things he "did not remember" and "did not recall." Well, Bill and Hillary Rodam Clinton - MrsSatan - responded with the same "I don't recall" numerous, multiple, excessive times during both the Whitewater Billing Records investigation for her and the Q&A session of Bubba committing perjury. Do they somehow have exclusive rights in "not recalling" something? Well, there were things Libby "didn't recall" or "didn't remember", as well. A memory failure is not something reserved solely for Liberals.

Return to the above Fitzgerald quote: "...we have not made any allegation that Mr. Libby knowingly, intentionally outed a covert agent. We have not charged that. And so I'm not making that assertion."

Plame wasn't undercover or covert and had not been classified as such for approximately five years. We know she recommend her husband for the Niger job even though she claims - lies is the appropriate word - that she didn't.
Conflict of interest or political nepotism, anyone?

If the CIA, Plames' employer and boss, didn't consider and designate Plame, by CIA definitions and standards - as a covert or undercover agent, then no matter how much she wanted play Natasha to Wilson's Boris, doesn't mean she was covert or undercover, no matter how much they pretend.

Valerie: Joe...
Joe: I keep tellink you darling, call me Boris. We're super-duper secret agents now.
Valerie: Sorry Jo... Boris, I forgot.
Joe: Dat's okay, Natasha. Vhat-ever eet takes to bring Boosh Administration down. Bwa-ha-ha-ha-ha!
Valerie: "Dat's right, dah-link!

Come January 2009, Bush in all likelihood will fully pardon Libby, and that's a good thing. The Libby Trial was nothing but one of many Democrat Dog And Pony Shows. The vast majority of American people realize and recognize this. This, in part, is why approximately a week ago, The Rasmussen Poll showed an all-time lowest approval rating of 14% for Congress.

Even moderate Democrats realize their party has been hi-jacked by the Extremist Insane Left Wing Liberal Posse, a shrill and vocal minority within their party. If the squeaky wheel didn't the grease and wasn't filled with such daily outward displays of hatred and rage - directed at any ideology, idea, issue and persons that isn't "one of theirs" - we'd never hear from them.
