NPR report noting the Lewis Libby and Victor Rita parallels

Today's broadcast of NPR's "Morning Edition" included this great segment by Nina Totenberg entitled "High Court Sentencing Vote May Bode Ill for Libby."  Here's is the web summary:

I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, former chief of staff to Vice President Cheney, is appealing his sentence of 30 months in prison for lying and obstructing an investigation into the leak of a CIA operative's identity. But the situation isn't looking good, after the U.S. Supreme Court voted 8-1 to uphold the sentencing decision of a North Carolina man who was convicted of charges similar to Libby's.

Extra! Extra! Bush commutes Libby prison sentence.

It only makes sense.
Libby was Bush's evil twin doing the dirty work for Bush, so commuting Libby is more like commuting himself. That's just what Bush is.
