I Beg Your Pardon
Now that Scooter's trial is over, and the drawn out process of appeals begins, there will be speculation on the timing of Bush's expected pardon. This would obviously create political damage for the Presidunce, given the managerial role that Dead Eye Dick played in the coverup and obstruction. There's also the growing odor of deceit permeating the justification for war with Iraq connected to this case. A quick pardon - - as suggested by such right wing outfits as the Wall Street Journal and the National Review - - would almost certainly lead to increased pressure on Congress to investigate why Dead Eye, Turd Blossom Rove, and others were so fixated on propping up the Niger uranium story after the 2003 invasion of Iraq.
