Somebody Done Somebody Wrong Politics

So, after not having written in a week or so – and on the eve of the anniversary of our nation's independence – I'm going to get (slightly) political on your ass.

Might I just ask, where is the outrage? I mean, the serious, impeach-this-guy's-ass outrage? I understand that the President has the power to commute sentences, to pardon his cronies, etc. But really? Commute the sentence of a guy who put the life of an agent defending this country at risk? Jeopardize any operation she's ever worked on and potentially the lives of other agents all because her husband pissed you off? Pissed you off because he told the truth? Seriously?

Scooter Libby deserves to be in jail. Never mind that Karl Rove and Dick Cheney should be there, too. Shouldn't there be a greater expression of outrage and defiance on the part of all the law abiding Americans who believe in truth, justice, and the American way? I mean, if you or I committed a crime, we'd have to serve our time.

I mean, it is seriously hard for me to believe that there was more discourse surrounding Clinton's blowjob than there is when that horrid little man we call the President uses his position of power to reward one of his cronies for ruining a decent person's life.
