It’s coming, folks. If you think he or his defense team really gives a sh*t about these charges, you’re nuts. That’s why it’s been most entertaining to watch the bloggers and media hounds cover this trial “breathlessly”, fully expecting Dick Cheney or even Libby himself to testify.
“The judge, Reggie B. Walton, expressed in the strongest terms yet that he had been misled by the defense team about whether Mr. Libby would take the stand in his own defense.”
C’mon, Judge Walton. Really? You really thought Scooter was going to take the stand after the prosecution pretty much nailed his hide to the wall? And did anyone actually think Cheney would come down and testify, under oath? Something he has yet to do his entire, soiled, 6 years in office?
These guys are laughing at the entire judicial process, for they know that in the dark recesses of January 19th, 2009 around midnight or so, Scooter is going to receive his pardon from the out-going George Bush, and that, as they say, will be that.
