Argument

The commutation of Scooter Libby's sentence is a compelling argument for amending the constitution to limit Presidents to single terms. Libby's perjury smoothed Bush's reelection, and now, with the power won through Scooter's illegal actions, Bush has shielded Libby from the consequences of his flagrant disrespect of our legal process. The upshot is that there is too much at stake in a reelection campaign to expect contemporary degenerates to control themselves, so, given the current moral state of the elites produced by our civilization, it is unrealistic to expect responsibility from people with that much power. And, while we're at it, let's also get rid of Presidential pardons -- they short-circuit the tripartitite division of government, and make the Presidency too attractive a prize.

People think Libby's 30 month sentence was too harsh? What about the 48 month sentence that four hundred million Americans are serving, partially as a result of his lies?
