This is ridiculous. President Bush should commute the sentence or outright pardon Scooter Libby. This whole thing is preposterous. The sentence is more than violent offenders often get.
Many legal scholars question the verdict and it is very possible that the verdivt will be overturned. Pardon Mr Libby , Mr President.

Ex-Cheney aide 'must go to jail'
Libby's supporters have called on President Bush to pardon him
Former White House official Lewis "Scooter" Libby has been told he cannot delay starting his jail term while he appeals against his conviction.
Libby was found guilty of obstruction of justice and perjury over the inquiry into the unmasking of CIA agent Valerie Plame and sentenced to 30 months' jail.
The ruling means Libby could go to jail within weeks. His lawyers will seek to block the decision in an appeals court.
Libby was the former chief of staff to Vice-President Dick Cheney.
