"It's Not Perjury or Obstruction of Justice If There's No Underlying Crime"

Remember how often we heard that one during the Libby trial? It was right-wing talking point numero uno.

And now that Scott McClellan has seemingly implicated Bush in the cover-up, Fox News will schlep it out again and again.

"It's not perjury or obstruction if there is no underlying crime." They really believe that, I guess.

So I assume the Fox News nuts will also spring to the defense of Barry Bonds. Right?

I mean, if they don't... well that would make them hypocrites. Right?

Yes, I remember it. And at least from a legal perspective, it's complete bullshit. Which, of course, we learned during the previous administration.

Of course, that has nothing to do with whether or not Fox will trot this crap out again. . . .
