bonds and drakeBarry Bonds and accused National Security Agency leaker Tom Drake share one thing: they effectively beat the system.

Bonds was convicted of a single count of obstruction of justice following an investigation and trial that cost perhaps (no kidding) upwards of $100 million.

Drake plea bargained possible prison time of up to 35 years down to

a misdemeanor of exceeding authorized use of a computer. He will pay no fine, and the maximum probation time he can serve will be capped at one year.

Is the government profligate?  Overreaching?  Inept?  All the above?

And remember, you still can’t spell Assange without a-s-s.
