Libby goes down. Cheney next?

Scooter Libby, who committed no crime in a non-existent case, was convicted on four out of five charges.

Damned liberal DC juries!

I wonder if Cheney’s next, as the FDL crowd has been hinting.

Update Nope. Fitzgerald says he and his crew are going back to their day jobs, unless Libby comes forward and offers information in return for a reduced sentence.

Game over. Our side mostly lost.
