Caught

Culture of Corruption update: If the government can't convict Democratic congressman William Jefferson with this evidence, they'd better throw in the towel and go home.

I'm with you on this -- throw him in jail and lose the key. And the same for all corrupt lawmakers, Republican or Democrat.

When it comes to corruption, I'm on the same side. Indict him.

Throw him out of office and in jail. No one who so abuses the public trust should be allowed to remain free.

here. here. But what about Clinton?! ;-) Oh yeah, that was just lying under oath. At least he was disbarred.

But what about Ted Kennedy? Oh yeah, that was just negligent homicide....

Oh come on... he looked so pathetic in the neckbrace, though. How could anyone convict Teddy when HE was the clear victim.

What about Tom Delay? Taht's only money laundering.

What about Scotter Libby? That's only leaking the identity of a covert CIA agent during a time of war.

Funny, I never hear Carol or CoPioneer or Pete calling for throwing those criminals in jail.

Get a life, twisted! It has been clearly shown that Liddy did not out Plame - her own husband did. But even at that, there has never been one shred of evidence or verification that she was a covert agent at any time within the past 5 years - a requirement for this being a law violation. If that was the case, the CIA itself would have gotten involved, which did not happen, and therefore, Plame is a non-issue for every one except Bush-bashers.

As for Delay, he has not been convicted, and it took the corrupt DA, what? three attempts before finding a grand jury to indict DeLay. Must have had a real open and shut case. Not! And this case needs the trial to find out if there is guilt - it's not like he was caught with $100K wrapped in tinfoil in the freezer!

Or, like wandering around for 10 hours or so in wet pants trying to figure out how to explain the body in the back seat.

Or, lying to a grand jury while a sitting President, and playing silly word games - "It depends on what your definition of 'is' is." Gimme a break!

Who should we believe?

On one hand, we have Pete (the factually challenged) claiming about Valerie Plame, "But even at that, there has never been one shred of evidence or verification that she was a covert agent at any time within the past 5 years - a requirement for this being a law violation."

On the other hand we have the judge trying the Scooter Libby case who has ruled, "...special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald found that Plame had indeed done 'covert work overseas' on counterproliferation matters in the past five years, and the CIA 'was making specific efforts to conceal' her identity..." [Cite]

Pete, either you are completely pulling things out of your b*tt and knowingly lying to everyone, or whoever is giving you information like this is playing you for a fool. Now, it's your God given right to look like a blithering idiot in public, but you might want to start questioning why your sources are lying to you.
