If I were Judge Walton, I would resign from the bench tomorrow (Bush will never successfully appoint anyone else to anything ever) and make a big god-damned deal out of why I was stepping down. Why do we need judges, or juries, or due process, anyway? Just let the decider decide everyones fate, based on their politics and their bank balance.
This is an affront to decency, to say the least. Was it enough?
This is what Nancy Pelosi had to say in the wake of Benedict Bush’s commutation of the traitor Libby:
"The President's commutation of Scooter Libby's prison sentence does not serve justice, condones criminal conduct, and is a betrayal of trust of the American people. The President said he would hold accountable anyone involved in the Valerie Plame leak case. By his action today, the President shows his word is not to be believed. He has abandoned all sense of fairness when it comes to justice, he has failed to uphold the rule of law, and he has failed to hold his Administration accountable."
So cowgirl up,
In closing, I refer Madam Speaker to the words of James Madison.
"If the President be connected, in any suspicious manner, with any person, and there be grounds to believe he will shelter him, the House of Representatives can impeach him; they can remove him if found guilty..."
