My oh freaking my…the list of people that wrote Judge Walton on behalf Scooter Libby reads like the docket of a future Nuremberg Trial. The Smoking Gun has the letters.
Donald Rumsfeld, Henry Kissinger, Paul Wolfowitz, and John Bolton top the list of individuals who wrote a federal judge on behalf of former White House aide Lewis “Scooter” Libby…Others writing on Libby’s behalf included Peter Pace, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff; Richard Perle, former Pentagon adviser; James Woolsey, ex-CIA director; Douglas Feith, former Under Secretary of Defense; Christopher Cox, ex-congressman and current Securities and Exchange Commission chairman; Leon Wieseltier, literary editor of The New Republic; Washington lawyer and former Nixon counsel Leonard Garment; former U.S. Senator Alan Simpson; former Soviet dissident Natan Sharansky; former Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman Richard Myers; and Dr. Anthony Fauci, a National Institutes of Health official.
But I have a little surprise for you. He may not have anticipated that his letter would become public, but none other than Corporal Cueball, Mr. James Carville himself, urged the Judge to consider “what further justice would be served by additional devastation to [Libby’s family] and the many other children that love Scooter.”
Here’s the letter, on Mary Matalin’s stationary.
Now…it might not be fair, but I see this kind of betrayal by James Carville to be a metaphor for everything that is wrong about the Clintons. Sure, when Poppy Bush goes gallivanting around the globe arm in arm with Bubba, we can make up excuses about ‘statesmenship’ and being ‘above the fray’. But the Bush family is a CRIME FAMILY and Clinton should never associate with them. This becomes clearest in the dining room of the Carville’s house, where no distinction is made between ‘left’ and ‘right’, only the ‘powerful’ and the ‘less so’.
Scooter Libby is a nice guy who loves children so it doesn’t matter that he worked tirelessly to start a disastrous war that has cost over half a million people their lives. It doesn’t matter that his administration has worked tirelessly to ratfuck Democrats and disenfranchise voters…especially minorities. No…none of this matters inside the Carville’s home. It’s all about power, for power’s sake.
This is, too much, what I see from the Clintons. Principles are malleable for this couple, just as they are irrelevant for James and Mary.
Scooter Libby should be rotting in prison for a long time for things he was not even charged with, and these fools think he’s getting a raw deal.
Talk to our troops and the people of Iraq. They’ll tell you who is getting a raw deal.
