Libby guilty

I guess I have to comment on this, being a liberal blogger. Otherwise, what good am I?

We’ve successfully convicted the fall guy. He certainly wasn’t innocent in the whole thing, but let’s face it, he’s not who the Left wanted out of this. They had their sights set on Dick Cheney and Karl Rove. Alas, we got Libby for protecting Cheney, it appears.

It’s been shown time and time again that this administration has little regard for honesty and this is a good example. Going on the idea that Drum suggests here, Cheney went ballistic trying to cover up what the White House knew about the Nigerian forgeries. Lies to protect more lies. It’s certainly not unprecedented, but it’s disheartening.

Is this conviction going to stop them? I don’t see it. They don’t have much time left, so at least it’s unlikely they’ll do much more damage. What have they learned at this point? It seems like very little. Constant failures and embarrassments should have taught them something, but here we are, sending the fall guy to prison. Until Bush pardons him, that is.
