If You Look Up "Travesty" in the Dictionary …

Lots of bytes flung on the Scooter Libby verdict over the past couple days, huh? One of my favorite quotes is from this (otherwise worthless) WaPo article.

While the White House publicly withheld comment, some Bush advisers expressed outrage, seeing a double standard and citing the documents-smuggling case of former Clinton national security adviser Samuel R. Berger. "Scooter didn't do anything," said former Cheney counselor Mary Matalin. "And his personal record and service are impeccable. How do you make sense of a system where a security principal admits to stuffing classified docs in his pants and says, 'I'm sorry,' and a guy who is rebutting a demonstrable partisan liar is going through this madness?"
