Despite being convicted
of perjury and obstruction of justice in connection with the Valerie Plame/CIA leak investigation; I think the ONLY thing that will prevent "Scooter" Libby
from receiving a full presidential pardon
, would be the fact that President Bush doesn't like to read newspapers and may not even know that Libby's in jail until sometime after he leaves office... when it's a question on "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire" ;)
So now that the verdict is in, all focus has shifted from Libby towards his former boss, Vice President Dick Cheney
; and speculation over his possible role in the outing of a covert CIA agent. However this time instead of an obstruction of justice preventing investigators from peering into Cheney's secret world, an "obstruction"
of his lower left leg may threaten to shut it down
permanently, due to "poor health".
But if you ask me, there really isn't much of a need for any further investigating, when so much of the publics’ assumptions about the Bush Administration have already been proven to be accurate. I say, instead of federal prosecutors wasting all that time and money collecting evidence, why not just gather a roomful of comedy writers and conspiracy theorists and just base their case solely on that? I mean, if the truth is indeed stranger than fiction, than the visual of "Darth Cheney" sitting in his Meditation Chamber; feasting upon the blood of stray cats while awaiting further instruction from Emperor Palpatine, may actually seem pretty tame by comparison.
