New Winner of Dumbest Comment on the Libby Verdict

I spoke too soon. Fred Barnes has laid a serious claim on the dumbest comment on the Libby verdict:

On Fox this evening, Weekly Standard editor Fred Barnes argued that Bush will pardon Scooter Libby because “he didn’t really seriously impede the investigation,” and “he’s been a loyal and effective member of this administration.”

Memo to self: when awarding the dumbest comment from a right-winger on anything, always check on what sheer stupidity is about to come out of the mouth of Fred Barnes.
