It seems as though all other news has taken the back seat to the fallout from yesterdays conviction of Scooter Libby. I don’t feel like joining the crowd on this. There’s just too many people in the room talking about the same thing. Head over to Memeorandum and see for yourself. I will mention one notable read. It comes from the Washington Post.
The fall of this skilled and long-respected public servant is particularly sobering because it arose from a Washington scandal remarkable for its lack of substance. It was propelled not by actual wrongdoing but by inflated and frequently false claims, and by the aggressive and occasionally reckless response of senior Bush administration officials — culminating in Mr. Libby’s perjury.
This editorial hits the nail on the head.
