VP Cheney's Chief of Staff Indicted

Vice President Cheney's Chief of Staff Irving "Scooter" Libby has been indicted on charges of perjury, giving false statements, and obstruction of justice. He has resigned.  Apparently, Libby was involved with other White House officials in attacking the wife of a diplomat who dared to tell the truth about false justifications for the Iraq war.  Libby then lied about his involvement, which led to the present indictments.

Get ready for conservatives to develop sudden amnesia over everything they said about perjury when they attacked President Clinton, who had lied to protect his family from learning about his affair with a White House intern.

If they try to claim that perjury is "just a technicality," they owe Clinton, and the world, a big apology (which we won't get). "Republican" is synonymous with "hypocrite".
