Did Scooter call Dick's Bluff?

So the President had to rush back to Washington from a fishing vacation with Putin to commute Scooter Libby's prison sentence?

What (or who) could make him decide to leave the press corps behind and make this sudden announcement?

My best guess: Scooter told his former boss that he would tell the whole truth about a wide variety of things (perhaps including statements the V.P. has made under oath, and not limited to the outing of a covert CIA agent) that would lead to Cheney's immediate impeachment and trial if he had to spend one night in prison. No more fall guy. (The RNC can help him cover his fines easily, but they can't serve time for him.) One phone call to the fishing boat and W was off to Washington to sign what he was told to sign and authorize a press release written by his handlers. (He certainly did not write it while fishing with Putin.)

Either that or Bush thinks he is the L.A. County Sheriff.
