Justice is for little people

The market's been crashing, Iraq is a daily orgy of violence and most importantly there is a f-ing chipmunk who has taken up residence in the edge of my new brick patio causing bricks to become dislodged. I filled in the hole twice a day only to have that instinct driven vermin dig it out. After sealing the hole completely, Alvin, dug a second hole on the other side of the patio. I have escalated to weapons of chipmunk destruction by putting poison cubes down the hole. Hopefully, the Earth will soon be lighter by one chipmunk.

On top of that I turn on my car radio at 7:01 a.m. to hear Karl Rove has been told he will not be indicted and will not face criminal charges relating to the outing of undercover CIA agent Valerie Plame. Another example in the "justice is for little people" theory. Wait, you say, I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, the Vice-President's former chief of staff was indicted. Yes, but that is just a kabuki dance for the masses before the pardon comes in act three. Thus it always was and thus it always shall be. Justice is for little people.

If you were looking for the wheels of justice to roll over Karl Rove you have now been disabused of that silly idea. I was praying for an indictment but alas I have been abandoned by the almighty. He must be busy making sure some sports team wins a game somewhere. Oaths, sworn depositions, indictments, bad lawyers and jail time are for the masses. Political figures are the new sovereign princes even if it's evil princes. They know a guy who knows the attorney general. They know billionaires, sports team owners and family fortunes that will pay for legal fees and fines to get out from under whatever they did to punish political enemies, rig elections or sieze or cling to power. Remember the ends justify the means isn't some enduring saying because it's wrong.

So the former fat kid whose mom killed herself, who has made a life paying back the world and his political enemies for his own bitterness, is out from under indictment. Rove is now free to out as many non-offical cover CIA agents as he pleases. He is free to send out his foot soldiers to attack the special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald and perhaps even get him investigated. Find me the man and I'll find you the crime. Rove is now free to lobby W for a pardon of his former co-conspirator Libby. And forget the nonsense on the Daily Kos about Cheney being in the sights of Fitzgerald. This case is over. The pardon is coming. Brace yourself. That's the way it works in America. I mean why go through all the crap to get into power if you can't use it to destroy your political opponents, legally or illegally, and then get your cubicle-mate to pardon you? It's a great country - except for the little people.

There is no justice for chipmunks either. They will be here long after we are gone, digging holes under our tombstones.

A simple case of great Lawyerin'...I tell you what you really want to know in exchange for a signed agreement that you won't indict me. It works in the so-called "war on terorism" the same as it works in the so-called "war on drugs".

Did anyone REALLY doubt that the Rovester would work a deal?

With the "little fat kid whose mother killed herself" comment you should hook up with miss Coulter and have mean little chipmunks

What I said is 100% fact. No opinion there. He was and is fat and his mother killed herself. Typical that truth is something you and the Republicans loath.

P.S. Had I said he was enjoying his mother's suicide I would be as evil and inhuman as your Republican spokesperson Ann Coulter.
