Perjurer the victim of vast Right-Wing conspiracy in 1998.

Perjurer a part of vast Right-Wing conspiracy in 2007.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Former White House aide I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby was sentenced to 2 1/2 years in prison Tuesday for lying and obstructing the CIA leak investigation.

What were they investigating? Fitzgerald knew that Richard Armitage leaked Plame before he even spoke with Libby.

Libby, the former chief of staff to Vice President Dick Cheney, stood calmly before a packed courtroom as a federal judge said the evidence overwhelmingly proved his guilt and left the courthouse without commenting.

"People who occupy these types of positions, where they have the welfare and security of nation in their hands, have a special obligation to not do anything that might create a problem," U.S. District Judge Reggie B. Walton said.

What was it again that Libby did to hurt welfare and security?
"It is respectfully my hope that the court will consider, along with the jury verdict, my whole life," Libby said in brief remarks to the judge.

You wrote a couple of novels but otherwise you were a sleeper cell for the vast Right-Wing conspiracy.

"We need to make the statement that the truth matters ever so much," Fitzgerald said.

Good thing Libby hadn't bonked Valerie Plame or the whole case would have been dismissed in so much as everyone lies about sex.

Meanwhile no one seems to be calling for William Jefferson's resignation - heck, no one has even called it Freezergate yet.

Fred, would you pardon him? "Yes. This whole thing has been an unconscionable miscarriage of justice," or words to that effect. Bush is a lame duck - why is he not taking the same position? "Turn the other cheek" doesn't mean never say anything about anything.
