One would think the sitting President (GWB) would do the pardoning, if only in January 2009.
Hero? That's debatable. I'm busy today but will engage you if you like. ~~ C®acker 09:15, 7 June 2007 (CDT)

Hmmm, the first three sentences are simple facts. Then we have:
" American hero," an opinion?
"is likely to be pardoned by the next president," a guess about the future?
"be he democrat or republican (there is no difference, really)." well, the next president could be a "she", and that's not just wild-eyed speculation right now. And this is another assertion that is not always borne out in fact. And what does it have to do with Scooter Libby?
I have no idea what the point of the above quoted material is. If there are "good things" that are facts to say about Mr. Libby, by all means, say them, but these assertions and predictions are a bit odd. humanbe in 10:48, 7 June 2007 (CDT)
Just for fun, I'm going to break the new addition off and write a third section, a parody of it. humanbe in 10:49, 7 June 2007 (CDT)
I'm coming around in my thinking, Heart-o'Gold brilliant use of argumentium silencea started the wood burning in mine Amish-style brain: Libby is a hero, he took a bullet for his boss, the VP, Dick "Dick" Cheney. 30 months in federal prison? He's set for life! Ollie North all over again. ~~ C®acker 06:59, 8 June 2007 (CDT)
Taking one for the boss - isn't that the American Dream? olliegrind 07:29, 8 June 2007 (CDT)
Perhaps we could have a competition - everybody adding a new adjective before "hero"?--Bob_M (talk) 07:46, 8 June 2007 (CDT)
By the way, most of my comment above was written before I realized that HG was actually being very funny, so I deleted my not-funny counter thing and edited his a bit. He's actually been adding a fair amount of humor to the site lately. Oh, and, yes, it's time for Adjectives Gone Wild! humanbe in 12:30, 8 June 2007 (CDT)

Conspiracy Theory?[edit]

I'm not sure that this fits the definition of "Conspiracy Theory". There was certainly a conspiracy to reveal the name of the CIA agent - but it was a real conspiracy. Isn't this a good example of what a "Conspiracy Theory" isn't?--Bob_M (talk) 05:54, 8 June 2007 (CDT)
