A Disgrace

What strikes me most profoundly about the Bush commutation of Libby is how Bush is apparently impervious to the fact that his entire administration, not just this one act, has possibly done irreparable harm to the nation.

I remember how agonized LBJ was over the Vietnam War and the protests which tore the country nearly asunder. I recall how Nixon seemingly aged 20 years during Watergate.

Both men were at least honorable enough to suffer, visibly, and to spare the country further infliction of themselves upon it.

Bush could not care less. Despicable.
