Bush Commutes Libby’s Prison Sentence

The New York Times:

President Bush said today that he had used his power of clemency to commute the 30-month sentence for I. Lewis Libby Jr., the former top aide to Vice President Dick Cheney, who was convicted of perjury in March and was due to begin serving his time within weeks.

Appalling, but not the least bit surprising. It’s not like Bush has to worry about a low approval rating.
