Word on the street is, Bush is blowing up at anyone who even asks him about pardoning Scooter Libby. Dude doesn't want to talk about it right now, ok?


Today's Times piece on the subject gives us two anonymous sources who nicely illustrate why no one can get a straight answer -- Team Cheney wants a pardon now, and the dudes who are trying to wrest control of the West Wing from that lunatic think it'd be idiotic.

* "Letting Scooter go to jail would be a politically irrational symbol to the last chunk of the 29 percent upon which he stands." -- "A conservative with close ties to the administration."

* "It would show a deep disregard for the rule of law if he was to do it right now, when there has been no remorse shown by a convicted felon and no time has been served." -- "A former senior administration official with his own ties to the case."

We're kinda stumped. Maybe Grover for the first one and... Bartlett for the second? He's almost former, right? Either way, nothing's going to happen until next week, when the judge denies Scooter bail and children across the country weep for their fallen hero.

Cripes the News has been awful lately! And so Yr Editrix suggested we find some good, positive news. Especially after we pitched writing a Wonket about this Mother Jones story on how global warming may be killing the whales, even though Donald Trump knows their prince. (Reply: "Nope. FOR SURE NOT THAT.") And so, as a reminder that a gooder world is possible and apropos of nothing at all that definitely didn't set your Editrix off on Twitter, where she has been stewing and bitching most shrillfully about the 2016 election and the 2020 election and any terrible similarities thereof and thereupon and therefore and thereto, we present a collection of videos of Elizabeth Warren yelling at big banks and calling for them to be broken up and their criminal operators to go to jail. Puppies and kittens will only get you so far, after all.
