Oh the Drama!

All the over-the-top drama about Scooter Libby's prison sentence, from the Right wing, amazes me. Libby broke an actual law. He broke the law when he obstructed an investigation of actual state business. That is, he was not being coy about who he slept with, or who he cheated on in his personal life. He lied about how his office, the Office of the Vice President, intentionaly outed a CIA agent, in a "time of war," and then tried to hide that from the special prosecutor. 'Nuf said.

I agree...he was convicted of obstructing justice. And whether you like it or not, our former President Clinton also lied to a grand jury and therefore, broke the law. I realize that the reasons each was in front of the grand jury differ, but that does not matter. You are not supposed to lie to the grand jury.

Personally, I think it was a collosal waste of time going after Clinton that way, but they did.
