These idiots amaze me

So, now the usual suspects come out of the woodwork over the communtation of Lewis "Scooter" Libby's prison sentence. Here are some of the quotes;

"Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald disputed the president's assertion that the prison term was excessive. Libby was sentenced under the same laws as other criminals, Fitzgerald said. "It is fundamental to the rule of law that all citizens stand before the bar of justice as equals," the prosecutor said.

Bush's decision enraged Democrats and cheered conservatives -- though some of the latter wished Bush had granted a full pardon.

"Libby's conviction was the one faint glimmer of accountability for White House efforts to manipulate intelligence and silence critics of the Iraq war," said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. "Now, even that small bit of justice has been undone."

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said Bush's decision showed the president "condones criminal conduct."

Unlike a pardon, which would have wiped away Libby's criminal record, Bush's commutation voided only the prison term."

Well now, can anyone say "Clinton"? Hmmmm, let's see he lied to a grand jury under oath and what happened?

yep. Nothing. Meanwhile, Clinton was essentially buying pardons. Of the 396 there was Mark Rich, who was wanted for Tax evasion and one of the Clinton's biggest contributors and probably the most notorious, The FALN terrorist's who were responsible for real violent crimes. Yet not a word was said about those. Clinton under the very law and system that Patrick Fitzgerald, NASCAR Nancy and Harry Reid lament should have been by all rights been brought to trial, but nope. And where were these same people when that happened? yep, nowhere.
