Keep Pleading the Fifth

So why did President Job commute Scooter Libby's sentence but not offer a full pardon? Because a full pardon would free Libby from one side-benefit of criminal scrutiny: pleading the Fifth, which means he can't be compelled to testify against, say, President Job and Cheney. It's clear as day and all the more disturbing for it.

Such audacity. Such sleaze. This administration will be remembered about as fondly as Nixon's. The biggest difference is that this time they're an embarrassment to the entire world.
