Joke of the Day

Q. Did you hear the president's plan for easing prison overcrowding?

A. If you're convicted of a felony, you don't have to go to jail!

I'd cry for the death of a judiciary divorced from the executive branch if it wasn't abundantly clear that it happened a long time ago. The fact that the president thought that Libby was too fragile to serve less jail time than either Judith Miller OR Paris Hilton is ridiculous. Every day, people go to jail for obstruction of justice whose lives are more ruined than Libby's- what makes him so damned special? Maybe they did a feasibility study and determined his speaking fees can be higher without jail time. Maybe that's it.

Le sigh.

No, his speaking fees would be higher with jail time. He would have real street cred.
