Martha Stewart, once hailed as the doyenne of domesticity, was found guilty of lying to federal investigators about a well-timed stock sale that averted a loss of roughly $50,000.
Could the Stewart prosecution have anything to do with a smokescreen to obfuscate transgression by such people as former Enron CEO Kenneth Lay, whom Dumbya refers to as "Kenny boy," or the leeway with which Vice President Dick Cheney's former employer Halliburton enjoys?
Martha Stewart acted on what appears to have been something of an inside tip, which I'm sure NEVER happens on Wall Street. Yet no one lost their life savings, tax dollars weren't squandered and no American lives were lost as a result.
Yet as of this moment, no criminal charges are pending against two employees of a Halliburton subsidiary accepted $6.3 million in kickbacks from a Kuwaiti subcontractor.
It's more Bush wool over our eyes.
