Who knew?


As it turns out, Scooter Libby, the guy who was just indicted on five counts of not telling the truth, has lots of experience not telling the truth. He's a novelist. Here's an excerpt from his steamy first novel, "The Apprentice: A Novel":

"Even moments later, he had not been sure why he had hidden at the top of the stairs. There was the girl, of course, but he had seen good-looking, even beautiful girls before and he had not acted so shamefully.

"He knew that there were those who enjoyed merely staring at young girls, but he had no reason to believe that he was one of them. Such people, he thought, enjoy the idea of being caught and embarrassing the woman, while he had been greatly afraid."

Anyone care to read between those lines?

Oh, dear god. My eyes just fell out of my skull.
"Such people, he thought, enjoy the idea of being caught and embarrassing the woman, while he had been greatly afraid."

True literary genius.

Yes. Imagine what literary genius will flow from his pen if he's convicted and gets 30 years in prison...
