The Crimes to Come

A lot of people are pissed tonight at President Bush for finally issuing that get out of jail free card to Scooter Libby. I don't know why anyone would be surprised. This is atypical behavior for this president. And after pissing off a huge percentage of his remaining supporters with the immigration bill, Bush had to appease them somehow.
