Paris Hilton is a bigger crook than Scooter Libby

Would someone please remind me what country I live in again? Because this is ridiculous.
WASHINGTON - President Bush commuted the sentence of former aide I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby Monday, sparing him from a 2 1/2-year prison term in the CIA leak case. Bush left intact a $250,000 fine and two years probation for Libby, according to a senior White House official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the decision had not been announced.

Bush's move came hours after a federal appeals panel ruled Libby could not delay his prison term in the CIA leak case. That decision put the pressure on the president, who had been sidestepping calls by Libby's allies to pardon the former chief of staff to Vice President Dick Cheney.

Libby was convicted in March of lying to authorities and obstructing the investigation into the 2003 leak of CIA operative's identity. He was the highest-ranking White House official ordered to prison since the Iran-Contra affair.
Great job, Mr. Bush. Heckuva job, in fact. Oh, and congrats on your soon to be lower than imaginable poll numbers. Enjoy that, really.

No person is above the law. So,Mr. Libby, take take your sentence as a "woman" like Paris Hilton who was brave and honnest enough to serve her time in jail.
