Libby's Freedom

In one of the most predictable moves of his presidency, George W Bush commutes Scooter Libby's sentence. Andrew Sullivan sums it up:

What more do we need to know? These people think they are above the law. This president thinks he is above the law. The vice-president believes he is above the law. And when democratic leaders act as if they are the law unto themselves, and are prepared to upend the justice system to serve their own political ends, it's time for a revolt. Sorry, David. But this won't be forgotten - ever. It's a final straw, a call to wake up before these criminals get away with it one more time.
