Former White House aide I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby was sentenced to 2 1/2 years in prison Tuesday for lying and obstructing a CIA leak investigation. Many had written letters asking for leniency on his behalf. Here are some excerpts:

"I think the name 'Scooter' has been punishment enough."
—Alberto Gonzales

“Neocons don’t go to jail.”
—Donald Rumsfeld

“He has paid his debt to society and never used ‘pay pal’.”
—Paul Wolfowitz

“That was nothing. You want to see some real crimes?”
—Henry Kissinger

“It's too dangerous for him in here. He'll need a rectum repair kit his first day.”
—Jack Abramoff

“His only problem was he lacked greed, and that is not a crime.”
—Ivan Boesky, former Wall Street insider trader

“He couldn't have done it. He wasn’t even wearing a glove.”
—O.J. Simpson

“A day without hairspray would be cruel and unusual punishment.”
—Phil Specter

“But he totally passed the breathalizer."
—Paris Hilton

“He was a fine chief of staff, and he’ll be an exemplary prisoner.”
—Dick Cheney
