Libby Walks

Bush commutes sentence.

Legally, not a pardon, but essentially the same result.

So, DUI/driving with a suspended license gets you more time behind bars than being convicted of perjury by a jury of your peers.

The text of the president's commutation statement can be found here.

UPDATE: Patrick Fitzgerald's statement on the commutation.

UPDATE II: Andrew Sullivan's link to Orin Kerr makes some interesting observations on the "partisan" nature of this case.
