Why Karl Rove is Skating...

It's not because he's innocent -- no one believes he is -- but because his case isn't a slam dunk. A very important distinction. I'm not sure why it's not a slam dunk, since he lied to the grand jury, but hey, what do I know? I thought shooting a guy in the face was illegal, so it shows where I'm coming from.

It's important to note that while lying to a grand jury and outing a CIA agent and shooting a guy in the face and listening to phone calls without warrants are all A-OK...

...remember that guy who allegedly masturbated in the public library in Cleveland?

In case you didn't hear, he was arrested and held on $500,000 bail.

As in half a million dollars.

The judge said she felt it wasn't excessive. Apparently, she was curling her pinky to her lips like Dr. Evil when she said it.

That's $500,000 bail for whacking your mole in public, with trial and sentencing yet to come. And nada for the CIA-agent-outing-grand-jury-face-shooting stuff.

Oh, well... the good news is he gets a trial. He could have been whisked off to Gitmo or a gulag for one of those trial-less deals.

That's one of the great things about life in America under a Republican-controlled government - we've got our priorities straight.

You just don't have your priorities in order, Mike.

You're both right... All I know is my jacking-off-in-the-library reindeer games are off for the time being. And if I can't masturbate in the library, don't the terrorists win?
