Last time I checked lying to the Feds is a crime. 30 months a harsh sentence? Ask the kid in Atlanta, facing 10 years for having consensual sex with one of his peers what's harsh.
In Mr. Brooks little world, I guess someone who looks like him gets nailed for a crime, it is a little harsh.
The only farce is Shrub's presidency. Even the 26% of the population who still support him, don't recall elected Cheney as the POTUS.
