The double standard of justice
Posted by Jill | 5:27 AM
If you're a Bush Administration insider who knows where all the bodies are buried, a 30-month sentence for perjury and obstruction of justice is "excessive." But if you're a disabled veteran of three wars, not only is it reasonable, but the very same president who commuted Scooter Libby's sentence will file a friend of the court brief to have your sentence upheld.

(via Joe Biden's blog and Pensito Review.

If Bush believes that as an administration insider, Libby is entitled to special treatment, then let him say so. But don't give us a bunch of crap about the sentence being "excessive."
