Quote/Wanker Of The Day

Billy Kristol gets the much-coveted two-fer:

“It became an issue of character and courage, really,” said William Kristol, the editor of The Weekly Standard, who had argued in his magazine that if Mr. Bush was not going to pardon Mr. Libby, at least he should commute his sentence. “I certainly think Bush did the right thing and I think he did something important for his presidency. I think conservatives would have lost respect for Bush if he had not commuted Libby’s sentence.”

Well, I guess if sending other people’s kids into a pointless neverending war is a hallmark of character and courage, I don’t see why pardoning commuting someone who broke the law on your behalf should be any different. I wonder how much energy I could save this summer by using the Republican moral compass as a fan…

Side note from the same story: The Bush Administration is no stranger to commuting where Scooter is concerned:

Mr. Libby and Mr. Cheney are extremely close – they often rode to work together before Mr. Libby’s indictment forced him to resign as Mr. Cheney’s chief of staff in October 2005….

Sorry, I couldn’t resist…
