Someone in Ohio Thinks You Suck, Sir 

I just got off the phone with the White House's comment line at 202-456-1111. After they asked me from what state I was calling, I read the following statement,
The president’s commutation of Scooter Libby’s prison term is nothing more than an obstruction of justice. Moreover, his excuse that the penalty was too harsh rings hollow coming from a man who as governor of Texas refused to even entertain the idea of commuting the death sentences of the mentally challenged and an obviously truly repentant women. It is especially galling since the president himself wrote in his autobiography, “I don't believe my role is to replace the verdict of a jury unless there are new facts or evidence of which a jury was unaware, or evidence that the trial was somehow unfair.”
I'm sure they had a good laugh.
