The Best Defense

In anticipation of being charged with a crime by CIA leak investigator Patrick Fitzgerald , Vice Presidential Chief of Staff Lewis 'Scooter' Libby walked out of the Eisenhower Executive Office Building this morning with the aid of crutches, signalling that he may intend to play the seldomly-employed "sympathy card" defense in any future court proceedings. According to one inside source, presidential political adviser Karl Rove may also be planning to make a similar appeal for leniency and is reported to have spent the past two weeks working on a painful limp and a "yucky-sounding cough from a cold that just won't go away."
