Forget Paris...

Hilton, Schmilton, speaking of let-them-eat-cakers who got a get out of jail (mostly) free card, Bush just let that momser Libby off the hook.

Yes, I know, we're, what: surprised by this? But really, you know, talk about thwarted schadenfreude. Can we at least all start cracking terrible jokes about his sexuality? Here, I'll start: something or other uh-oh Scooter scooted, better hide the the deer and the bears. Something. eh, I can't be bothered.

Goddam. I wonder how many of the people who were gloating over the celebutante who got hers (poor lambkins, now she's comforting herself with a multimillion dollar summer house in Hawaii, apparently) even know who the hell Libby is? Or why this matters?

Oh well. I love right now, I really do. "Why, no, the peasants didn't get any more bread, and the Revolution is a no-go. But check it: we totally made Marie cry. Schweet."

"Bush left intact a $250,000 fine and two years probation for Libby, and Bush said his action still "leaves in place a harsh punishment for Mr. Libby.""

You know everything's relative, and I somehow doubt that a fine like that is harsh in the situation. Besides, what with Libby's memory, he'll promptly forget any suffering paying it out might cause.

The last line made me laugh my fat ass off. Thank you! (This has been a crap day, and I needed it.)

So, when does the Revolution start again? *sigh*

Seriously, I want to be surprised by this, but. . .the rule of law has no meaning to these people, does it?

Of course, if they had taken the Clinton approach it would have been a non-issue (just had V. Plame's husband killed instead of trying to discredit him).

Yes, right. And then of course if Bush had done something really -serious-, like fucking an intern, we might have had him impeached by now. --Look, don't you have an aluminum millenary to run or something? Jesus.
