LIBBY LIBBY LIBBY – Y'know, the big ol' squishy liberal in me can understand at least one of the impulses behind our president's commutation of Scooter Libby's "harsh" prison sentence. If I had someone take a big hit for the team like that, I might wanna ensure that they didn't suffer too much for it, too. But where I take issue is with those Clinton bashers, who once so loudly brayed about Rule of Law back when Big Bill was in office, who are now talking an entirely different party line. For them, it's clear, the phrase "rule of law" is just one more rhetorical device, not a deeply held component of their own (you should excuse the expression) personal ethics . . .
