  1. Why does Mary Matalin want money from me? Don’t she and her hubby, James Carville, have enough millions between them not to solicit my lunch money?

    Based on an email I received from Matalin on December 21, she is passing the can for the Libby Legal Defense Trust. The name of the c-3 charitable fund for a convicted Cheney staffer, who endangered our national security, is a bit out of date. After all, Scooter Libby was convicted and Bush didn’t pardon him, so what is there to defend?

    According to Matalin, Scooter deserves his “good name” back, and wants me to pop for a few dollars to help him remove the blemish of being convicted of a crime. Scooter must be feeling really down after exposing a CIA agent engaged in trying to reduce illicit trade in weapons of mass destruction (the ironies abound).

    Indeed, Matalin is particularly crestfallen that Scooter’s reputation is under siege again: “Scooter’s name has been in the news quite a bit lately,” Matalin emailed me and many others, “due to the release of the highly partisan, inaccurate, and distorted movie ‘Fair Game’ based on Valerie Plame’s book.”

    I have no idea how I got on the Libby Legal Defense Trust list, but in response to Matalin’s appeal, I’m going to break open my piggy bank and give a donation to the Bradley Manning Defense Fund.

    Now, there’s a guy who deserves some financial support. We owe him dearly.
