    Wonder if he'll actually do time. People walk in Illinois for that, don't that?

    Everybody lies, right? I mean, it's the FBI for God's sake!

    That was my best recollection of the defense of Bill Clinton and lying. Maybe I missed something :eusa_angel:

    You always lie, by commission or omission, you always lie.

    Scooter Libby ring a bell? Similar charge, lets see how the RW responds when the guilty is a D and not an R.

    So, your position is that Blago and Libby did the same thing? Really?

    From my recollection, this was about all Libby was charged with. Blago had 24 counts against him and this is all they convicted on. (PRAISE BE TO THE JURY). Seems like a BIG distinction to me.

    As I recall, Libby threw sand in the eyes of the umpire. Similar efforts, both attempted to obstruct justice.

    Why post idiotgrams? The point maybe way over your head, but why prove it?
