I'll believe it when I see it.

Ok, I said the same thing about Paris Hilton. I was wrong about that, but boy was I happy to be wrong. Same with Scooter. I want to be wrong about this, but I doubt I will be...

He'll be pardoned as soon as necessary. Bush don't care that it'll be an unpopular choice. Everything he does is unpopular.

But will he refuse to eat or drink anything for fear that a guard will snap a cell phone pic of him taking a dump?

I'm afraid someone will snap a pic of him taking a dump, and that I will see it.

Oh c'mon, doing time at "Club Fed" is about as brutal a punishment as propping your broken leg up on the edge of a ski lodge fire-pit; sure, you can't ski, but, so long as the bartender keeps the hot brandies a'comin', who cares?

Plus, he's probably already working on the Harper Collins deal, and lining up those lucrative aprez-incarceration speaking engagements, even as I write this.

That is, unless Duke Cunningham is busy making him his bitch.

"will not delay"

"within weeks"

Uhm.... ok.

Okay, so it's true that Club Fed is not the burning mattress and anal rape hellhole that we toss most criminals into. But, the loss of liberty, and the fact that low paid prison employees will be empowered at any time to perform a body cavity search will be intolerable to a man who believed he was above the law and in control of the levers of power. For at least the next fifteen months, he cannot go where he wishes. The opportunity to make love to his wife is a privelege granted to him based on good behavior, and is restricted to monthly visits. He must shower in groups. He must shit in full view of anyone who may wish to look. His mail is subject to search, seizure, and censorship.

Perhaps with an experience of having his freedom denied, he'll learn to oppose what his boss is trying to do to the rest of us.

lol You guys aren't thinking big enough. After the sentencing didn't his wife make some kind of remark to someone about "we're going to fuck them"? Maybe I misheard that. Either way...if Scooter ends up having to sit his pasty white ass in jail I bet he sings like a canary if for no other reason than to get even.
