I guess it'll be up to History to impeach the Lush-Zany gang

As Jonathan Schwarz of A Tiny Revolution points out:

Harry Reid is mad as hell and isn't going to take it anymore:

The President’s decision to commute Mr. Libby’s sentence is disgraceful. Libby’s conviction was the one faint glimmer of accountability for White House efforts to manipulate intelligence and silence critics of the Iraq War. Now, even that small bit of justice has been undone. Judge Walton correctly determined that Libby deserved to be imprisoned for lying about a matter of national security. The Constitution gives President Bush the power to commute sentences, but history will judge him harshly for using that power to benefit his own Vice President’s Chief of Staff who was convicted of such a serious violation of law.

Oh, if only the United States Senate had some way of judging George Bush! If only our Founding Fathers had had the foresight to provide such a method in Article I, Section 3, Clause 6 of our Constitution!

But sadly, the Senate is completely powerless in such situations, leaving this matter entirely in the hands of history.

Thank our lucky stars for History! If History were not to come to the rescue, there would be no one at all to judge Bush harshly. Surely not the House of Representatives, as such harsh judgments are, we are told, "not worth the effort". The Senate is still figuring out if there is actually still such thing as a Constitution at this point, so is left to issuing angry 30-second sound-bites and perhaps threats to vote on non-binding resolutions to say further angry things about the Prez at the next available opportunity for an angry 30-second sound-bite.

¡Viva History! We can sleep soundly tonight knowing that in 40 or 50 years hence, History will issue a harsh verdict regarding Bu$hCo's shenanigans. I don't know about you, but I am eagerly anticipating History's prompt action on this matter.
