I've a nasty head cold today, hence the lack of serious blogging. It's the kind of cold where you feel like your heads been stuffed into a goldfish bowl and then inflated with compressed air to a few atmospheres, but the bowl keeps everything from flying apart.
Still, even with my sinuses locked down tighter than a Gitmo hearing I can smell the kind of hypocritical BS involved in the Bushevik plan to "reimpose mandatory minimum prison sentences against federal convicts" while said Busheviks are getting all teared up about "Scooter Libby needs a pardon". And let's not even think about their pals like Abramoff, DeLay and Cunningham.
Throwing people in jail reduces crime, right? So how come the U.S., which has the highest number of inmates as a proportion of its population in the world, isn't also the safest place on earth?
Our very own Libby, posting on her own blog, says it better than I can.
