Tweety: so sad Scooter Libby's lawyer couldn't defend his criminal client when he was just a good soldier
Savannah: Fitzgerald hid behind the law and didn't litigate the war so unfair
Tweety: Bush commuted his sentence - is that justice or a conspiracy to obstruct justice?

Matthews: you are fucking insane - you thought we would be greeted with flowers
Bolton: no i always felt we should not invade Iraq
