I'm too busy

How convenient that the attorney for Lewis "Scooter" Libby, the indicted former chief of staff to Vice-President Darth Cheney has a scheduling conflict this September and thus Libby's trial is now set for Jan. 2007, two months after the 2006 elections. The trial is set for Jan. 2007 however that will be difficult to do since the pardon is coming in December 2006. Probably around Christmas Eve. News reports have donations to Libby's defense fund at $2 million so when this all ends everyone will be happy. Libby will probably get his own talk show and maybe another high level government job. Then he'll sue for back pay, defamation and perhaps malicious prosecution. Bet his lawyer won't have any scheduling conflicts then. But in September 2006 he's too busy to go to trial.

Scooter and Karl Rove weren't too busy to phone reporters and leak Valarie Plame's name thus outing an undercover CIA agent. Or too busy to lie to and obstruct grand juries and FBI agents investigating the leak. Or too busy too have White House emails go missing. No not too busy at all. But seven months from now they're all too busy. Bravo.

I wish I were too busy to read all the articles about how busy indicted White House staff members and their lawyers are.

If you're looking for things to keep you busy - I'm looking for someone to clean the pool.

We're lawyers. In the interest of expediency, we should clear our calendars and offer to show up in September so that the public doesn't have to wait for justice. And, a $2M defense fund! I am sure I could draft enough motions to put my future kids through college. :-)
