new CNN poll shows that Americans overwhelmingly believe that President Bush should not pardon Scooter Libby, who was convicted last week on felony charges of perjury and obstruction of justice.
Since when has this administration cared what the majority think? Frankly, I view the inevitable Bush pardon of Libby as if it were Mayor McCheese granting a pardon to The Hamburglar. Both are absurd, cynical mockeries of our justice system.
Libby will be sentenced on June fifth. My guess is that the pardon will be granted on June 1st, the last Friday before sentencing.
