Over at The Corner, Kate O’Beirne launches a tongue-in-cheek scheme:
Suppose President Bush had to go in for some elective surgery that necessitated anesthesia and, with his temporary executive authority, Dick Cheney pardoned Scooter Libby. A grave injustice would be remedied and we could watch a massive breakout of Paris Hilton’s symptoms on the Left.
As much fun as that might be to watch, it would be patently unjust. Dude perjured himself, a jury of his peers said so. Doesn’t matter why, or how wrong Wilson was. Lying to a grand jury is no way to rectify an injustice.
A simple commutation of his prison sentence would suffice, so long as he pays the quarter mil in fines, selah.
