We can sentence a shortstop for lying to Congress, but Bush, Cheney, Gonzales, and Yoo are still on the street
Shortstop Miguel Tejada gets a year's probation for misleading Congress in a steroids investigation. Fucking pitiful. Just pitiful.
"People have to know that when Congress asks questions, it's serious business," Assistant U.S. Attorney Steven Durham told the court. "And if you don't tell the truth — and we can prove you haven't told the truth — then there will be accountability."
Unless you're a courtier in Versailles. Then, you can trash the Constitution, break the law, and lie with impunity: All Congress will send you a sternly worded letter and throw up its hands in despair if you don't even answer it. Yay!
Look! Over there! America's pastime!
