. . . . As Kate O'Beirne lays out the Conservatives' case for a presidential pardon for Scooter Libby on Hardball.
It's not only enough to make your head spin, it might actually explode.
To Chris Matthews' credit, he was more proactive in challenging O'Beirne's fantasies of this case and the laws governing it, than I've ever seen him do with her. Matthews has plenty of "making it up to the American people" to do, but today was a worthwhile effort. However, I'm still waiting for the day when, in the spirit of full disclosure, Matthews informs his audience of O'Beirne's husband's role in the disaster that is the war in Iraq. Kate O'Beirne has a direct and significant interest in making sure that this story remains buried.
