So let me get this straight : Paris Hilton goes to jail, but Scooter Libby doesn't ????

Paul Begala got it right - hop over to the Huffington Post to read his entire comment (and others, equally fine). An excerpt:

...But if you're rich and right-wing and Republican, George is a real softie. As George W. Bush demonstrated in giving Scooter Libby a Get Out of Jail Free Card, he is only compassionate to conservatives.

What does it say about America in the age of Bush when Judith Miller spends more time in jail over the Valerie Plame smear than Scooter Libby?...

Yep that's how it works in "W" land. Didn't you know that the "W" stands for weasel?

Yeah, it is a good thing that we get dangerous criminals like Paris & Martha off the streets while others like Libby, OJ, and Michale Jackson go free.

I don't get it.

Even worse, I predict that in 5 years, people will remember who Paris Hilton is, and think that Scooter Libby* is a kid's cartoon character ...

*a tongue-tied newscaster here called him "Scooty Liver"!
