See Ya!

Goodbye Mr. Libby, it's been swell..

From the Washington post:
I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, former chief of staff to Vice President Cheney, was sentenced today to 30 months in prison and fined $250,000 for lying to investigators about his role in leaking the identity of an undercover CIA officer

Christy at Firedoglake breaks the bad news for Libby diehards:
Arguments on whether or not Libby will be allowed to remain free on bond pending appeal will occur next week — but Judge Walton has already indicted that he is disinclined to buy such arguments from defense counsel. That sets a high bar for them in terms of changing the judge's mind on that issue. In the meantime, Libby was sentenced today to a 30-month term in federal prison, with a 2-year term of supervised release following the completion of that sentence, a $250,000 fine, and a requirement of 400 hours of community service.
(emphasis mine)

Ooops...It looks like Scooter is going to have to sit in jail while he waits for that pardon, which probably won't be forthcoming until after the election. Sucks to be you Scooter. I hope you don't get bitter about the fact Karl Rove is walking free and probably sold you down the river to save his flabby ass. I'm sure the VP and his wife have you in their prayers. Which demon lord do they pray to? I keep forgetting...
