Why I hate _Slate_

Here, a triumphal Timothy Noah celebrates the Libby pardon, and compares it to Bill Clinton's "perjury" when he said that oral sex was not "sex." (If another man were in that position -- being asked about specific sexual acts that were not intercourse -- why would he go out of his way to be so specific? Bill Clinton would not have been convicted of perjury in a court of law! No chance.)

Noah says:

What Bush did was just and fair. It was the right thing to do.
Hmm. The federal legal system does not agree.

Noah says:

But Judge Reggie Walton went overboard in sentencing Libby to 30 months.
Obstruction of Justice is no petty crime. It's what the mafia does when they threaten to kill witnesses.



Forgive me, but Bush gave the Pope something with the Ten Commandments on it a while back. Here are two of the Commandments:

SIX: 'You shall not murder.'

NINE: 'You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.'
Well, Bush is culpable for the first, and has strongly condoned the latter.

This makes me shake my head. Good God let it be over. Worst President Ever.
