Scooter Libby was found guilty. Interesting, yes. Earth-shattering? No. As far as I’m concerned, the only thing he was found guilty of is being sloppy. Yes, he’s the highest ranking White House official to be convicted of a felony since Iran-Contra. But of the crimes perpetrated on the American public by the Bush administration, obstruction of justice is the least of them.
If Bush & Cronies, LLC. were half as good at governing as they are at covering their tracks and maintaining plausible deniability, we would have eliminated disease, poverty, hunger and terrorism about five years ago.
Incidentally, do any of you think this man will spend one night in jail? Or do you think that the appeals process will go long enough to get to Bush’s certain pardon?
