a bit of irony about the Libby sentence commutation

On the last day of Clinton's presidency he pardoned a bunch of people, one of whom was Marc Rich, who had been convicted of among other things, illegal trading to Iran. Of all the last minute pardons, this was the one that had the biggest outcry of complaint.

Rich's attorney was Lewis "Scooter" Libby!

Will wonders never cease? Either way, both the pardon (for Marc) and the commutation are morally objectionable.

As my (republican voting) boss said this morning, "Bush just handed the 2008 elections to the Democrats." Sounds like a fair deal to me.
