Libby Thoughts

How soon do you think it'll be before Scooter Libby has a new job at The Heritage Foundation or the American Enterprise Institute or one of the other right-wing think tanks as a "visiting fellow?" And how soon after that will he be the recipient of a "loan" for the $250K fine that he's supposed to pay?

Any bets?

Update: Oh, silly me. Al Kamen of the WaPo reported in January of 2006 that Scooter had become a fellow at The Hudson Institute.

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.

So the question now is, how's that novel coming, Scooter?

Libby a deep thinker? chortlechortlechortle. The Hudson Institute isn't getting their money's worth.
