James Carville, Scooter Libby  defender, via his wife:

Though my husband James Carville, a Democratic Strategist and Clinton supporter, shares neither political nor philosophical views with Scooter, he has deep respect for his intellect, his integrity, and joins me in the sentiments expressed here.

Among those sentiments are pablum like:

One of the many enduring and endearing memories of Scooter is his universal love of families.

Except for the Plame/Wilson family of course. And those of our soldiers stuck in Iraq...

I have seen what this trial has done to my own kids, just reading about it.

Too bad Uncle Scooter turned out to be a felon who outed a CIA agent in a fit of partisan pique, then lied to investigators about it to cover up the role of his and mommy's boss. The horrors!

In any case, this is apparently what Carville is up to while he's not pretending to be a disinterested political observer lauding Hillary Clinton on CNN. Let's see what company he's in: Donald Rumsfeld, Henry Kissinger, Paul Wolfowitz, John Bolton, Richard Perle, and Douglas Feith.

Quite a rogue's gallery, a virtual "who's who" of the neocon cabal, proving once again that "national security" is only of concern when it furthers their own agenda.

In any case, the judge might've been more spooked than moved by this show of support. Libby just got 30 months and a $250,000 fine.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
