Appeals Court: Scooter's Gotta Go. Oops, premature post.

This from Commondreams.org and more at Huff Post and of course, Firedoglake.
And btw, McCain is in meltdown as well, fired 50 of his staff.

"A federal appeals court panel has unanimously ordered that a former White House aide, I. Lewis Libby Jr., is not entitled to remain free while he appeals his convictions for obstruction of justice, false statements, and perjury in connection with an investigation into the leak of a CIA officer’s identity. Barring intervention from the Supreme Court or President Bush, Libby is likely to be required to report within the next few weeks to begin his 2 1/2-year prison sentence."

Even though this feels like hanging on to a hair on the hind leg of the boar known as Cheney/Bushco, it's the only hair we have -- for now. Well, that and subpoenas of the White House. Both will put mondo pressure on George, once he gets done fishing with Vlad, to make some very big decisions. I know, he's made one on the subpoenas already, (well, Fred Fielding has) but this boogaloo ain't over yet.

You know what? Until today, I can truthfully say I have not hated Bush. I have loathed and detested the things he has said and done, not said, not done, but until today, I have not hated the air he breathes and every fibre of his being. Until today.
