Before I start, I have to confess that I didn't really follow the whole Clinton/Lewinsky scandal, so if my information is bad, feel free to set me straight. As I understand it, President Clinton lied under oath about his affair with Ms. Lewinsky before a grand jury. Now, before you go into the standard left-wing chorus about how it was all just about a blow-job, blah blah blah, the fact is he lied under oath. Period. For this, he should have been punished appropriately (harshly, in my opinion) no matter who he is or what the question was. The same is true for Scooter Libby. All these republicans saying there is "no underlying crime" are completely disingenuous. According to a court of law, he lied under oath and should be punished - harshly.
In order to get as good a system of justice as we can, people must understand that lying under oath in any court of law carries with it a severe punishment, primarily jail time. Without this threat, the incentive to tell the truth diminishes. Without truth, justice is going to be harder to attain.
Anyone who has been found to have lied under oath should serve hard time, Clinton, Libby, you, me, whoever.
OK, maybe not me. I'm sure I'd have a really good reason for lying. The rest of you, though, hard fucking time. Got it?
