What are friends for…

From a Washington Post news alert: Bush Commutes Libby Prison Sentence.

So much for justice… And here’s why, from the Horse’s Mouth: “The Constitution gives the president the power of clemency to be used when he deems it to be warranted. It is my judgment that a commutation of the prison term in Mr. Libby’s case is an appropriate exercise of this power.” How touching. Heartwarming, really, to see so much compassion and concern coming from a corner one doesn’t expect much humanity from. Maybe this is starting a new trend? “You murdered your parents? Oh you poor orphan — let’s grant you clemency”…
