Correction – THIS is the News Crawler Graphic of the Day

Not the Ann Coulter one (which is a couple of days old, anyway), but this one:

CNN screen capture: 'Lewis 'Scooter' Libby guilty of obstruction of justice'.

From CNN:

Former White House aide I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby has been found guilty on four of five counts in his perjury and obstruction of justice trial. Libby faces a maximum sentence of 25 years in prison and a fine of $1 million. Libby, the former chief of staff to Vice President Dick Cheney, was accused of lying and obstructing the investigation into the 2003 leak of CIA operative Valerie Plame’s identity to reporters.

Or, as a wag on Wikipedia put it in a soon-to-be-edited-out part of the entry on Libby: “This treasonous dogfucker is going to jail.”

You’re technically correct: Libby was found guilty not of treason, but of obstructing justice, lying to the FBI and perjury. It’s sort of similar to the way Al Capone wasn’t guilty of murder or trafficking; he was just a simple tax evader. Hey, we’ve all omitted a couple of things on our T4’s, eh?

Now can we agree on “dogfucker”?

Not really, but I’m not too broken up about it either.

In other news, you don’t make the first page of Google anymore for “accordion”…
