Bush Waives Libby’s Jail Time

Alas federal prisoner 28301-016, we hardly knew ye.

"I respect the jury's verdict," Bush said, "But I have concluded that the prison sentence given to Mr. Libby is excessive. Therefore, I am commuting the portion of Mr. Libby's sentence that required him to spend thirty months in prison."

All that's left is a $250,000 fine, which will doubtless be paid by Libby's neocon fan club, and some good old fashioned bonding time between Libby and his parole officer.

What do you think of Bush springing Libby?
