What made me yell $#%& YOU! at the radio tonight...

Driving home from another exciting Junior Varsity Girls Basketball Summer League game, I heard a soundbite that made me shout a loud profanity at my car radio. From ABC News:

ABC News' Steven Portnoy Reports: The former ambassador whose criticism of the Bush administration touched off the CIA leak scandal calls President Bush an "accessory" to obstruction of justice.

In an interview with ABC News Radio, Joseph Wilson said Bush's commutation of I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby’s prison term demonstrates that "this administration is corrupt to the core – from top to bottom."

In commuting part of Libby's sentence, Wilson says, President Bush is complicit in Libby’s crimes.

"He is an accessory to the obstruction of justice in this commutation of the sentence," Wilson told ABC News. "He, himself, is now under a cloud."

I have tried to keep this P.O.C. blog as free from profanity as I can (Cynthia Rodriguez, notwithstanding). But this needs to be said:

$#%& you, Joe Wilson! I guess this was your last chance to be relevant about anything the rest of your get your name out in the media one more time.

Of course here is Joe Wilson and wife running away from the spotlight (Vanity Fair, 2004):

Personally, I still haven't figured out what Scooter Libby did to get in trouble with the law...and actually I don't care. The whole thing bores me and I'll leave it up to the experts to lay that out. But I do know the following:

1. Whatever Libby did, it was not even close to the misconduct of former Clinton National Security Advisor Sandy Berger. Berger STOLE and DESTROYED classified documents from the National Archives that could have been useful in the 9/11 Commision's report. How much jail time did Berger get?

2. Libby didn't do what most libtards accuse him of...outing Valerie Plame. Richard Armitage did that. Armitage has not been prosecuted.

3. Joe Wilson and Valerie Plame are media whores. They've tried to avoid the spotlight like insects avoid porch lights.

Scooter Libby is still paying a large price for having a faulty memory. His prison sentence was commuted, but the guy is still on the hook for a $250,000 fine and he now has a criminal record. What exactly did Sandy Berger get again for STEALING CLASSIFIED DOCUMENTS?

Preston at Six Meat Buffet takes on the easy task of shining the light on libtard hypocrisy:

“The President’s commutation of Scooter Libby’s prison sentence does not serve justice, condones criminal conduct, and is a betrayal of trust of the American people,” Nancy Pelosi, Democratic leader in the House of Representatives, said in a statement.

Heh. Condoning criminal conduct? That’s what the Senate does day-in and day-out as we learned last week.
