Another Douchebag Gets His Comeuppance

Bonds Indicted By BALCO Federal Grand Jury

Major League Baseball's all-time home run king Barry Bonds was indicted Thursday on perjury and obstruction justice charges, according to KTVU reporter Rita Williams.The five-count indictment -- four counts of perjury and one of obstruction of justice -- could put baseball's home run king in prison for up to 30 years.The White House quickly weighed in on the indictment. President Bush is a former owner of the Texas Rangers. "The president is very disappointed to hear this," Bush spokesman Tony Fratto said. "As this case is now in the criminal justice system, we will refrain from any further specific comments about it. But clearly this is a sad day for baseball."Meanwhile, the San Francisco Giants issued a short statement calling it "a sad day.""This is a very sad day," the team said in a prepared statement. "For many years, Barry Bonds was an important member of our team and is one of the most talented baseball players of his era. These are serious charges. Now that the judicial process has begun, we look forward to this matter being resolved in a court of law."
