Crime and Punishment

Some people are saying are saying Scooter Libby shouldn't perjury conviction is unjust since there was no underlying crime. Well, that's not strictly true. Certainly no one has been prosecuted for an underlying crime. And it's also true that Patrick Fitzgerald doesn't know if any criminal act actually occurred with regard to the Plame leak. There's a good reason for that: Libby obstructed the investigation.

No Exit

From a comment at the Washington Monthly blog:

Apparently, Libbey and Rove despise each other.

Great. Now I know who I'm going to spend eternity with.
