The Onion has the skinny on "Scooter" Libby's backdoor pardon.
I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby has made the "tactical" decision to drop his appeal. After all, why spend millions of dollars in legal fees when you still have friends in high places? President Bush earlier commuted Libby's sentence, keeping the former Cheney aide out of prison but leaving him with a criminal record and a fine. The White House won't comment on whether Bush intends to pardon Libby.
This satirical report says millions of immigrants are seeking an amnesty deal like the one given to the man they revere as "El Libbre." Who knew Libby would become the hero of America's undocumented worker population?
The satirist pokes fun at the Libby verdict and the president's rush to distance himself from a liar.
