A Pig in the Pokey?

June 14 (Bloomberg) — Lewis “Scooter” Libby, an ex-aide to Vice President Dick Cheney, must go to prison while appealing his conviction for obstructing a CIA leak probe, a judge ruled.

Will Little Irving Scooter go to jail or stall until Chimpy pardons him on his last day in office remain free throughout the appeals process? We might not know for a while, but I assume that the uncertainty has Scooterpie pooping in his pants!

From Eric Griego in The Albuquerque Tribune:

Many people believe when Rove and Cheney wanted to attack former Ambassador Joe Wilson for questioning some of the president’s statements and the intelligence on which the Iraq War was based. In retaliation, Rove leaked the name of Wilson’s wife, Valerie Plame, to Robert Novak, who wrote an op-ed on July 6, 2003, outing Plame as a CIA operative.

Libby became the target of the investigation when it became clear that the White House was not going to let Rove or Cheney hang for the leak. Sounds like a James Michener novel gone bad.

    probably a capon:
    ca·pon /ˈkeɪpɒn, -pən/ [key-pon, -puhn]
    a cockerel castrated to improve the flesh for use as food.

    maybe i used the wrong animal in the title?

  5. Thanks I feel better now. Also I never liked capon so that was a good pick

    Chicken a’ la Treason, best served on a bed of stainless steel and garnished with sprigs of skunk weed. Too bad that this isn’t the slow cooked kind, that takes 15 to 20 years.

    perhaps i should have changed the title from stir crazy to stir fry! it seems that this white house keeps jumping out of the frying pan and into the fire. in the meantime, all of us do a slow burn.
