From yesterday’s Press Briefing with boy-howdy Scott Stanzel.
Q Scott, is Scooter Libby getting more than equal justice under the law? Is he getting special treatment?
MR. STANZEL: Well, I guess I don’t know what you mean by “equal justice under the law.” But this is a unique case, there’s no doubt about that. And we have said that there are a lot of people on all sides of this issue who’ve made good points. The President took a very measured approach to it. He believed that the jury verdict should be respected and — but he did feel that the sentence was excessive, in terms of jail time. But this is a unique case, and there’s no doubt about that.
Yeah, I can see how you might be confused with “equal justice under the law”. Quite a phrase, ain’t it? It leaves so much unsaid. A whole lotta gray area there, huh?
I guess killing over 150 people when you’re the Governor of Texas wasn’t, how do the kids say it these days? Excessive?
No, that wasn’t excessive in the least bit.by
