In case you need to be reminded what sort of demented apoplectic fits Colorado Lefties can inflict upon themselves with their irrational, knee-jerk Bush hatred, take a look at today’s posting from the angry El Paso County Democratic Party:
First, there’s the inconvenient part about having to get facts straight: commutation is not pardon. Second, there’s the hyperbolic rhetoric.
Finally, and most noteworthy, is the selective outrage shared by the El Paso Dems and their Speaker heroine Nancy Pelosi:
Pelosi was unwilling to criticize a president of her own party when he turned loose terrorists convicted of such crimes as seditious conspiracy, possession of unregistered firearms and interstate transportation of a stolen vehicle. Keep that in mind as you read her statement yesterday:
The President’s commutation of Scooter Libby’s prison sentence does not serve justice, condones criminal conduct, and is a betrayal of trust of the American people.
The President said he would hold accountable anyone involved in the Valerie Plame leak [sic] case. By his action today, the President shows his word is not to be believed. He has abandoned all sense of fairness when it comes to justice, he has failed to uphold the rule of law, and he has failed to hold his Administration accountable.
Now, if this had been the subject of the Patrick Fitzgerald witch hunt…
…You’d be rooting for a full pardon, wouldn’t you?
