Steven Grant's thoughts as he walks us through twisty-turny courtroom escapades of convicted perjurer Scooter Libby and convicted moron Paris Hilton:
What it comes down to, though, whether your name is Hilton or Libby, there is now considered to be a class of people in this country - the rich, powerful and connected - for whom the application of the law in the same way it is applied to all the rest of us is considered to be a gross miscarriage of justice. Not that there hasn't always been, but there haven't ever before been quite so many voices with access to the media howling to make it an acknowledged standard.
That about says it, doesn't it? Read the entirety of Grant's piece here (scroll down past the comic book stuff).
