Embrace the horror

The breathless anticipation is over. Jennifer Wilbanks, the "runaway bride" was indicted today by a grand jury in Gwinnett County, Georgia and charged with one count of making false statements, a felony punishable by up to five years in prison, and one count of making a false report of a crime, a misdemeanor punishable by a year in jail.

I thought the result of making false statements was to be either given the Congressional Medal of Freedom (Gen. Tommy Franks, CIA Director George Tenet, CPA Viceroy L. Paul "call me Jerry" Bremer), promoted to Secretary of State (Condi Rice), nominated for U.N. ambassador, elected to a second term (Bush and Cheney), installed as World Bank head (Paul "Wolfie" Wolfowitz) or have a cabinet post created for you to oversee all U.S. intelligence agencies (John Negroponte). I guess the "runaway bride" had the mis-fortune of only being a fiancee in a red state rather than an executive brancher fooling the red states.
