There is nothing just in the Fitzgerald prosecution of "Scooter" Libby. I'm outraged that an innocent man has lost his job, has had his name drug through the mud and is having to spend a fortune to defend himself against baseless charges. Even if he is found innocent his life will be forever tainted.
Former Senator Fred Thompson rightly blasts Fitzgerald and had this to say:
When you put too much power in the hands of unelected, unaccountable people who have every incentive to focus massive resources onto one particular person — who gets the plaudits in the media for doing so — it's a bad thing. And many, many times an injustice can occur," said Thompson in an exclusive interview with ABC News.
It is becoming all too apparent to me that if Democrats can't beat you in the ballot box they will resort to any other means possible. Ann Coulter nails it on the head in talking about the Libby case:
So why is there a trial? Because there is no penalty for using the threat of imprisonment as a political weapon against conservatives. Ask Tom DeLay or Rush Limbaugh.
If Libby were a Democrat, we would know the sexual proclivities of everyone in Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald's office, Judith Miller would be portrayed as a "stalker," Tim Russert's cat would be dead, and the public would know about every toupee at MSNBC.
I'm not sure how we stop malicious, narcissistic, media whore prosecutors from ruining people's lives but they are starting to be all too common. Just ask Scooter Libby, the Duke LaCrosse players, Rush Limbaugh and Tom Delay. As Reliapundit once wisely said, they are scum.
