Dry Snitch, the urban lingo for “indirectly telling on someone” – Standing within earshot of someone, saying loudly what you want that person to overhear, and then letting that person run and spread the information.
The Democrat party is rejoicing at the news about Scooter Libby. No, not that he was convicted on 4 of the 5 counts, but the news that he plans to appeal. “Has Christmas come early, did I forget about some Hallmark calendar day, is this a holiday in some other country”, the Democrats are thinking to themselves, but I feel happy!
Libby’s defense team had guided the courts to believe that they would prove that their client was a scapegoat for the Bush Administration, Carl Rove and faulty memory on the parts of other witnesses. None of that was proven; neither Vice President Cheney nor Libby took the stand in his defense. Was it that Scooter was told that he would have to take this one for the team, “you know what happens to people we don’t like…..”

MSNBC Reported (WASHINGTON) – Vice President Dick Cheney’s former chief of staff, I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby, was convicted Tuesday of lying and obstructing an investigation into the leak of a CIA operative’s identity. Libby is the highest-ranking White House official to be convicted of a felony since the Iran-Contra scandal of the mid-1980s. The conviction focused renewed attention on the Bush administration’s much-criticized handling of weapons of mass destruction intelligence in the run-up to the Iraq war.
The verdict culminated an almost four-year investigation into how CIA operative Valerie Plame’s name was leaked to reporters in 2003. The trial revealed how top members of the Bush administration were eager to discredit Plame’s husband, former Ambassador Joseph Wilson, who accused the administration of doctoring prewar intelligence on Iraq. Libby faces up to 30 years in prison when he is sentenced June 5 but under federal sentencing guidelines is likely to be sentenced to far less. Defense attorneys immediately promised to request a new trial or appeal the conviction.
An example of how a Dry Snitch happens in the hood is expressed in these lyric by Head Arabic…
Head Arabic –
So son what’s the deal? He ain’t takin his route
He rather stay home like a bitch, and have a allaby
What his cut look like, he think he takin half
While we do all the dirt, he sit home on his ass
I got a funny feeling son, somethin just ain’t right
Kinda glad I didn’t go wit Rum and them that night
And sure enough nigga, you best to believe
Duke snitched under the hot light, like steady people
Wit a vote than a Clinton, Rum and me
Him in cell 2, and me in cell 3
Now some of these niggas are bitches too
And some of these niggas look just like you
So if you ever been bit by a snake
Take a minute to think if you can truly trust the click you click wit.
