Define "respect".

So Bush pretty much doesn’t care how corrupt and fucked up he looks now, right?

I mean I’m just checking.

He has now stepped in to get the man convicted of obstructing an investigation into why a CIA agent had her cover blown suspiciously soon after her husband publicly criticised the Iraq war out of jail.

His explanation?... “I respect the jury's verdict. But I have concluded that the prison sentence given to Mr Libby is excessive."

Hmm. Bush could pretty turn up to a press conference and eat a live baby at the podium and I would neither gain nor lose any more respect for him.

What's wrong with that? He's just helping a mate out... I feel sorry for poor Libby, he was SO the victim of a Democrat-inspired witchhunt... I say we give him a medal. For persistence in sticking it to accountability.

Oh actually yeah you make a good point. I’m going home and burning my (newly acquired as a gift - thanks Ali) ‘Friends don’t let friends vote Republican’ T-shirt.
