Scooter Guilty!

Scooter Libby has been found guilty of perjury etc etc in the Plame case. (EDIT: Guilty of 2 counts of perjury, 1 count of obstruction of justice and 1 count of lying to the FBI. Libby was acquitted of the 2nd count of lying to the FBI.) Awesome -- I was almost sure he'd walk. (No doubt there'll be an appeal, and that'll go on til the end of the Bush presidency, when Scooter will be pardoned.)

Still, a huge embarrassment for the Bush administration. Oh, right; they don't get embarrassed about anything, do they.

And another thing: Georgie made a statement about Libby's conviction, "too bad so sad" or whatever. But what's the old Clotmeister got to say about all this? Considering Libby took a fall for him, you'd think he'd at least have something to say: "See ya later" or "I'll bake you a cake with a file in it" or "Buh-bye". Instead: *crickets* Evil, odious old bastard.
