Jorge Bush can send his trained pit-bull Johnny Sutton to railroad Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean, the Border Patrol agents who upheld our laws (ones, alas, Jorge doesn't approve of), undoubtedly put the heat on to get Gil Hernandez thrown in prison as well, and hasn't yet had the balls to say a single word about it.
But when one of his political hack buddies is sentenced to do time in the slammer, that's more than his corrupt little heart can bear.
That's right: Ramos, Compean and Hernandez do their time in conditions dangerous to life and health, while Lewis "Scooter" Libby, well, scoots....
I don't give a rat's ass about Libby. The charges against him sounded dubious to me in front.
But if a jury found him guilty, as juries found the three law-abiding citizens "guilty" (albeit, in the latter three cases, based on lies and violations of the rules by the persecutors and massive judicial malfeasance in the Ramos and Compean trial), then shouldn't "Scooter" have to wear those prison overalls too?
Jorge doesn't think so.
It's almost as if the same Mexican politicians and drug smuggling barons who urged him to stick it to Ramos, Compean and Hernandez urged him to cut Ricardo Cheney's lackey a break.
And don't believe for a second that things would be different if Jorge's enemies were in charge. The victims' names might change, but the Democrats are equally proficient at punishing their opponents and protecting the crooks who can do them the most good.
It is abundantly clear that Jorge, through Sutton, wanted to make examples out of decent men who risked their lives to defend us. You just can't cross El Presidente and get away with it.
But you can get a break in a big fat hurry if you're part of his cheering section.
Jorge needs to go. Pronto.
