Libby To Use the Reagan "I Can't Recall" Defense
No surprize here: Libby plans to pretend he was zonked out on Quaaludes during his plotting to destroy ambassador Wilson. All the criminals in this case will plead the same. We should force Alzheimer's victims to cease working on the government's payroll.
From Associated Press:
The lawyer for Vice President Dick Cheney's former top aide is outlining a possible criminal defense that is a time-honored tradition in Washington scandals: A busy official immersed in important duties cannot reasonably be expected to remember details of long-ago conversations.I bet Mr. Criminal Libby, a highly trained, very expert lawyer, "Cheney's brains", is really a stupid idiot who can't remember if he turned off the stove or where he is going when he leaves the house because he is a Reagan clone. Right.
Friday's indictment of I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby involves allegations that as Cheney's chief of staff he lied to FBI agents and a federal grand jury.
Libby, who resigned immediately, was operating amid "the hectic rush of issues and events at a busy time for our government," according to a statement released by his attorney, Joseph Tate.
Hahahaha. So, we have a bunch of forgetfull dumbbells running America. No wonder our country is in serious trouble even though we pretend all is well, the economy is growing, isn't it? Yeah. Right.
Anyway, this top notch, highly placed, highly trained lawyer will do what Mafia lawyers do: play dumb, drool on the stand, have a nurse hold his hand, whine, dither around. Oh, he is so weak and helpless.
I know for a fact the GOP and their tools have memories of swiss cheese. Full of convenient holes where they stash all their crimes. Note how Judy Miller's brain couldn't remember hardly anything until she sat in prison for a while. Then suddenly, the light dawned, the dark chambers in her brain were opened up and examined and lo and behold, she suddenly remembered important things she shouldn't have forgotten in the first place.
I can't wait for Bush to say he was out of the loop in all this. Oh, these Reaganauts are so very cleverly brainless.
