Well, we had to do something to feat the remarkable occasion, before the end-of-the-week.
It's not every day you witness the President of the United States work his end of-the-deal of a Quid Pro Quo, which, as we all know, is what down this past Monday afternoon.
The Bush Grindhouse was in peril.
One of there loyal own was about to be carted off to jail, despite the Bush Grindhouse's efforts to pack the courts with "their kind of judges".
I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby did his part, back in 2002-2003, exposing covert CIA Agent Valerie Plame, kept doing his part, lying and obstructing justice during the subsequent investigation, in the Grand Jury, and completed his part during his trial earlier this year, by not calling his boss, the Vice President to testify, and by not testifying himself.
And he waited, if not nervously, patiently, through the sentencing and through the appeal to remain free on bond.
Then, without warning, The Commander Guy morphed into The Commutation Guy and Cheney could rest easy in his Secret Bunker, perhaps his first night, in many, without sleeping with the defibrillator nearby.
The Quid Pro Quo was complete.
So, if he is going to skate, he needs a soundtrack, something he can groove and sway to as he rolls off into the sunset,
Everybody, sing along, it's an old school lullabye!
Hush Little LibbyBonus Links
Hush little Libby don't say a word
Cheney's gonna get your sentence deferred
If that Decider does his thing
It'll piss off the whole left wing
If the left wing bites our ass,
Cheney's gonna buy you a looking glass
If that looking glass gets broke,
Our asses will be covered by the Neocon folk
If those Neocon folk don't push,
We can just blame good ol' George W. Bush
And If George Bush doesn't fold his tent,
We can easily win this arguement
If the spin we spin won't bark,
Rove'll get Fredo to fire another shark
And if this deal just won't go down,
You'll still be the sweetest little liar in town
