  The Scooter Thing

Sadly, No! has reaction from NRO, if you're curious. I'll do my own little take later.

Not a good week for the Bush administration.

UPDATE: The National Review's editors are already demanding a pardon:
There should have been no referral, no special counsel, no indictments, and no trial. The “CIA-leak case” has been a travesty. A good man has paid a very heavy price for the Left’s fevers, the media’s scandal-mongering, and President Bush’s failure to unify his own administration. Justice demands that Bush issue a pardon and lower the curtain on an embarrassing drama that shouldn’t have lasted beyond its opening act.
Another way to look at it is: the chief of staff for the most aggressive vice president in history paid a price for his operation's arrogant, vicious, and dangerous attempts to smear a political opponent. You might even say that Scooter Libby is a victim of the out-of-control dirty-tricks machine that has taken control of the conservative movement itself. Of course, he was also a cog in that machine, so.
