Hardball-Turley-Pardon The right wing apologists are out in force today, attempting to defend Scooter Libby and the President's decision to commute his sentence. Who better to counter the lies and spin than constitutional law professor, Jonathan Turley? The apologist, R. Emmett Tyrrell, Editor In-Chief of the far-right leaning American Spectator was no match for Shuster and Turley. He not only applauds Bush's decision to commute Scooter's sentence, he believes he should have been given a full pardon.

Shuster asks him what position he took on the Clinton impeachment and watch the spinning begin. Shuster doesn't give him much wiggle room, calling him on his hypocrisy. Turley repeats his assertion that Vice President Dick Cheney should have been an un-indicted, co-conspirator in this case all along..
