So Scooter Libby cashed in his “Get out of Jail Free” card today.Ã‚Â He has to pay a fine, which Fred Thompson has already helped him raise money to cover, and he gets a couple of year’s probation.
Well, I always knew that George W. Bush was an idiot, without principle, without integrity, and without any character at all.Ã‚Â Today that belief was confirmed with the stroke of his Crayon.
But there are some local characters that really have me wondering when they’re going to pull their heads out and realize what I have known all along.Ã‚Â Heck it would be nice if these guys would even report the major story of the day on their blogs.
So here it is about 8 hours after the story broke and Matt Cunningham of OCBlog and Jon Fleischman of FlashReport have yet toÃ‚Â even comment on the topic. Martin Wisckol over at the Register’s Total Buzz Blog has been following the story all afternoon, gathering comments from all over TheOC.Ã‚Â
And even though none of us at LiberalOC make our living blogging fulltime, Dan Chmielewski managed to keep us on top of the story throughout the day. Even Allan Bartlett over at the Powder Blue Report weighed in early.
So I’ve gotta wonder, what gives?Ã‚Â Was there some other news story that pushed all others aside? Is this simply not news?Ã‚Â Did their computers mysteriously fail? Were they at the beach all day? Are they on vacation?
No, it probably is simply that these guys believe President George W. Bush was right to commute Scooter’s sentence, but are afraid to say anything about it.Ã‚Â Or it could be even more simple…
Here no evil, see no evil, and speak no evil.
