my occasional musings on life, love, art, perfume ... what else is there?

No Schadenfreude

No matter where one stands on the political spectrum, it is inappropriate to take any pleasure out of this indictment. And, frankly, rabidly partisan liberal Democrat that I am, I'm shocked to feel this way.

But listening to the Republican Special Prosecutor's legal reasoning arising from the two year investigation, and the four five-year counts and one ten-year count for which I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, chief of staff for Vice President Dick Cheney, has been indicted, one can only feel sad and disgusted. For the man. For the mindset and circumstances that allowed this to happen.

But also proud that the system was permitted to work.

Why is it inappropriate to take pleasure in the fact that, finally, someone in the Bush administration is perhaps going to be held accountable for (some of their many) wrongdoings? Innocentuntilprovenguilty and all that. I, for one, am taking pleasure in it.

We'll see how well the system continues to work in the next several months, hmmm? A lot can come of this -- or nothing, depending on who spins best and who works fastest.

Nose to the grindstone, fellow patriot. There's much work to be done, and attention to be paid. (And, I'm sorry to say, just a TINY bit of satisfaction to be gotten from Firday's events.)

Peace.
