It was a very, very smart move on MrO's part. I heard that he wasn't shy in expressing his desire to not see Leaperman "punished." To have supported tossing Leaperman over the cliff ~ and he deserved tossing ~ would've made MrO, and really all the Dems, look vindictive. Which, of course, they are, but now the GOP can't point and say so.
Also ~ Leaperman is now beholden to have had some semblance of his shriveled balls left intact. He no longer has any spoiler's wiggle room left. Leaving what's left of his shriveled balls intact, the party now has him by them.
I hate it, but it's brilliant.

I was pissed when I heard it but you are right it was a brilliant move. A bury the hatchet move that actually makes all things possible instead of a vindictive move that would cull the future possibilities. And it isn't future partisan possibilities, it is the ability to get some actual stuff done to fix what is broken.
ONE WINTER a Farmer found a Snake stiff and frozen with cold. He had compassion on it, and taking it up, placed it in his bosom. The Snake was quickly revived by the warmth, and resuming its natural instincts, bit its benefactor, inflicting on him a mortal wound. "Oh," cried the Farmer with his last breath, "I am rightly served for pitying a scoundrel."
Moral: The greatest kindness will not bind the ungrateful.
