Libby is Clinkbound

Judge dispatches Scooter to the hoosegow:

A federal judge said Thursday he will not delay a 2 1/2-year prison sentence for I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby in the CIA leak case, a ruling that could send the former White House aide to prison within weeks.

Good. Have fun in the big house, Scooter!

Wait…within weeks?!

No date was set for Libby to report to prison but it’s expected to be within six to eight weeks. That will be left up to the U.S. Bureau of Prisons, which will also select a facility.

No word on whether Scooter will be given credit for “time served” during those six to eight weeks, even though he’ll be trapped in the prison of his own mind, desperately wondering when and to what federal country club he’ll be sent. Boo hoo.

  1. We should start a pool about when Scooter will report, or if he’ll be forced to at all. I’m betting on an emergency stay the day before he’s scheduled to report.

  2. [H]e’ll be trapped in the prison of his own mind, desperately wondering when and to what federal country club he’ll be sent.

    Yeah, it’s not like he’s going to a six-by-nine in Leavenworth. I’m just about out of sympathy today, and he ain’t getting none of what I got left.

  3. Huzzah!

    I agree about emergency stays (I’ll think Libby’s team has already spoken about that), and then there’s the pardon angle.

    It’d be nice to see him spend any time in jail, and more than Hilton.

  4. Maybe he can spend some of that time thinking about his stand on cooperation with the prosecutor.
    Will the rest of the Washington insiders be holding candlelight “free Scooter” rallies on his behalf?

    Boo hoo hoo! Poor Scooter! Who knew that obstruction of justice could actually result in getting punished?

    Maybe while he’s in the clink, he can resume his hobby of writing disturbing fiction.

  6. I wonder if he was black and had been caught with five oz. of Mexican hemp in his pocket would he recieve five to six weeks on the outside while the Prison system picked the right spot for him. Smokin dope will destroy the world. Fucking up the system of justice that is supposed to protect us all deserves consummate consideration. Pretty well sums up the state of the nation in my mind.

    what kinda bird don’t fly?

  8. I wonder if he’ll go all Paris Whatsername on us…

    And you gotta know that with a name like “Scooter,” it doesn’t matter how cushy the joint is, he’s going to end up married to the guy with the most cigarettes.

  9. I wonder if he’ll end up serving more time than Judith Miller did(without whining, I might add). It would be very ironic if he got out on pardon or by winning his appeal with less time spent than the one who was protecting him. (I know, he hardly has grounds to appeal, but I do not trust the appeals court in this – too many bushies at the top levels of Justice)
