27. honestly, I'd rather see Bush tarnished by a pardon than see Scooter in jail
There is a good possibility that pardoning Scooter would hurt the GOP more than Scooter going to jail in terms of showing how throughly corrupt these people are. "They started a war based on lies. When someone caught them in their lies, they outed a CIA covert operative as punishment. Then Cheney sent his hench man out to lie for him and when the hench man was convicted of lying, they pardoned him. These guys can't be trusted to run a competent government or tell the truth. No one is safe. They put party and profit above all else. Above truth, above the rule of law, above our lives."
