The Hitch Sez, “Free Scooter Libby”

Okay, sure, Christopher Hitchens really ticks me off, sometimes, but when he’s right, he’s right.

 He condenses the whole miscarriage of justice that was the Libby Trial, in the last paragraph of his article in Slate:

Given the unsoundness of the verdict, the extraordinary number of other witnesses who admitted to confusion over dates and times, and the essential triviality of the original matter (an apparently purposeless coverup of a nonleak, in private and legal conversations, involving common knowledge of information that was not known to be classified), it is unlikely that the verdict at present can stand scrutiny, let alone the sentence. But why go through all this irrelevant and secondhand hearsay again? Those who want to “get” someone for “lying us into war” have picked the wrong man and failed to identify a crime. Let them try to impeach the president, who should in the meantime step in to avoid any more waste of public money and time and pardon Libby without further ado.

Yeah, Mr. President. It may  increase your poll numbers, too.

Fred! Blogging

Fred! is all over the newz, today.

As I’m sure you’ve already seen, He’s at the top of the new Rasmussen poll. 

Here he is with a few choice words for Harry Reid:

But Reid’s comments are not meant for logical analysis. He proclaimed the war lost some time ago, and the surge as a failure even before the additional troops were on the ground. The problem is that every one of Reid’s comments I’ve noted here has also been reported gleefully by Al Jazeera and other anti-American media. Whether he means to or not, he’s encouraging our enemies to believe that they are winning the critical war of will.

Why doesn’t anyone in the Bush administration have the cojones to lay it out like this?

Here he is speaking in London:

Yeah, he’s not even in the country on the day he becomes the frontrunner!
