No felony goes unrewarded

In case you were losing sleep over how poor old Scooter Libby was going to make ends meet, what with having to quit his job on account of treason and all, you can put away the Ambien. He got a job as a senior fellow at the right wing think tank, the Hudson Institute, focusing on issues related to terrorism and Asia and strategic planning.
He will join a team of conservative thinkers that includes Robert H. Bork , Michael Horowitz and former National Security Agency director William E. Odom .

We're told that his salary is on par with the going rate for the deep thinkers -- presumably at least as much as his $160,000 White House gig -- and that, if he wants, he'll probably still have time to do some consulting or work on a second novel.
Or we presume, occassionally consult with his lawyer -- he is still under indictment. Gotta love the far right extreme political machine. The only crime is disloyalty. You only suffer in that crowd for trying to keep to the law, not for breaking it.

They have to take care of him, he threw himself on the grenade to save Cheney.

You think Ollie North came up with his radio show by himself?

On the bright side, the lawyers have already eaten up most of his money.

You think he's paying for his own legal fees? I seem to remember some huge fundraiser a few weeks ago, headlined by Cheney or one of the other bigwigs in the Tribe.
