23. Great piece, Will. I'm wondering, though, if Libby would meet the
criteria for a pardon (not that Bush would ever let criteria get in his way, but I'm just sayin').

I found this on the web:

http://jurist.law.pitt.edu/pardonsex4.htm

And I've also heard from different sources (mostly on AAR) that, as it states in the piece I linked to, that the person would have to show genuine remorse for what he/she did. Genuine remorse is not something that comes easily to the neocons, as you well know.

Well, I'll be looking forward to the 14th, to see what happens. I hope the judge sends Libby straight to jail, do not pass "Go", do not collect $200 (or $2,000,000) on the way.
