The new Libby rule:

It looks like in this country there are two sets of laws. For the vast majority of us there is the law, but then for the small number of mega-rich politically connected types; there's Bush justice. The right wingers have spent so much time and effort to pack the courts with their ideological fellow travelors, about two thirds of the federal bench are now of the Federalist Society ilk, and they talk a good game about getting tough on crime with their mandatory minimum sentencing, but when it comes to one of their own, well that's different.

W. has got a lot of gall to claim the Libby sentence was "excessive" when he denies due process to some 300 odd detainees at Gitmo, whom he's prefectly content to just allow to waste away. My God, where' the outrage?
