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.


More at The Agonist:

The British are feeling the pinch in relation to recent bombings and have raised their security level from "Miffed" to "Peeved." Soon, though, security levels may be raised yet again to "Irritated" or even "A Bit Cross." Londoners have not been "A Bit Cross" since the blitz in 1940 when tea supplies all but ran out. Terrorists have been re-categorised from "Tiresome" to a "Bloody Nuisance." The last time the British issued a "Bloody Nuisance" warning level was during the great fire of 1666.
