Driving to the North Carolina mountains on Thursday night, my wife and I heard this illuminating soundbite from Scooter Libby attorney Theodore V. Wells, Jr about five times:
In pleading not guilty, [Libby] has declared to the world that he is innocent.
Uh, yeah. In fairness, here's the full quote, which is less cringe-inducing:
In pleading not guilty, he has declared to the world that he is innocent, he has declared that he intends to fight the charges in the indictment, and he has declared that he wants to clear his good name and he wants a jury trial.
Luckily for Libby, Wells isn't being paid $500/hour for his PR skills.
