« Is Paris burning? | Main | Friday afternoon conspiracy theory: 6-15-07 »

June 15, 2007



You know, I could hardly dislike Scooter more.

But the civil libertarian in me never likes to see anyone go to prison.

And that's especially true for someone caught in a classic grand jury "perjury trap" by an overzealous federal prosecutor.

I didn't like it when they did it to Clinton (and I liked Clinton only somewhat more than Libby)

I really don't like it when they do it to activists, and that happens a lot.

So, no, I don't like it when they do it to this slimeball either.


It's a point well-taken, and thank you for being more principled that I was feeling this morning. I did notice as I was posting the contradiction between gloating over Scooter Libby going to prison and my finger-waggin' scold at all of America for being glad that Paris Hilton is going to jail.
I think it's worth pointing out, though, that (Fitzgerald's over-reaching or no) the Scooter Libby trial (everything about it, including the defense's surprise strategy) represented a major split in the ruling class. Paris getting locked up (and folks' glee about it) represents only a fatuous, fake, infuriating, false iconoclasm -- Watch us smash our own idols! That just makes me mad, I can't help it.


Dad said to me:"Get coach bags please!And look out of the window. What a fine day! Let's go to park,"It was really a good day, So my mother, my classmate and I went to the park. On the way to the park. I saw coach canada the blue sky with snow-white clouds. I saw pear trees and some apple trees and so on. Below the trees, there are several kinds of flowers. It's colorful, blue, red, yellow, pink, purple, orange and white.I saw some coach purses balloons and butterflies in the sky. I ate popcorn, cornflakes, banana and lollipop. They were wonderful. In the afternoon, we went to coach outlet store. I visited the birds, mice, cats, dogs, budgies, hamsters, rabbits and so on.
