Scooter Libby t-shirt

Guess Libby's Pardon Date, Win a T-Shirt

Washington Post columnist Al Kamen is serious about the t-shirt offer. His inspired piece pinpointing the various occasions President Bush might use to pardon Scooter Libby ends with this offer:

Send your entries -- one date only: month, day and year -- to: intheloop@washpost.com. Ten people closest to the pardon date will receive a coveted In the Loop T-shirt... Deadline is March 14, assuming Bush doesn't act before then.

Says Juror Denis Collins: "It was said a number of times, 'What are we doing with this guy here? Where's [Karl] Rove ... where are these other guys?' We're not saying we didn't think Mr. Libby was guilty of the things we found him guilty of, but it seemed like ... he was the fall guy."

CNN's Brianna Keilar reported that as the verdicts were read, Mr. Libby blinked and "it seemed as if he was somewhat surprised."

Former Ambassador Joe Wilson said, "The vice president was quoted as saying he was sorry for Mr. Libby and his family. I wish that he would express his sorrow for what has happened to my wife, whose career was destroyed as a result of this, and to the [military] service people for a war that was justified by lies and disinformation."

Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean said the investigation should go deeper. "There's a lot more going on here than just this," Dean said on CNN's "The Situation Room. "We know that the president was not truthful with the American people when he sent us to war. We don't know if the president committed a crime or not; it would be interesting to find that out."

Justice: the handmaiden of schadenfreude.

I can believe Scooter took those bullets for Cheney. That's just too bad.

That juror in the Libby trial asked the right question: where's Karl?
