No GOP-sponsored pardons for George W. Bush or Dick Cheney!
Remember the Republicans have a history with this sort of thing. Like that time newly ascended President Gerald Ford issued a pardon to recently resigned ex-President Richard M. Nixon, even though Tricky Dick hadn't been arrested, charged, arraigned, nor convicted of any crimes.
True, he was definitely going to be impeached after the three articles of impeachment passed in the House, and then likely convicted in the Senate, but once he quit there wasn't any legal reason for him to worry. Unless he was guilty of something.
Of course, being pardoned doesn't mean that doesn't mean he wasn't guilty of something. All it means is that justice for his possible crimes was subverted.
I think we'll have a much better chance of seeing justice properly applied some time after January 20th.
No wonder Bush has already said he wants an orderly transition to an Obama administration...he doesn't want to piss off the guy who will have a large say in the decision to pursue W's prosecution.
All of a sudden, the dumb hick gets smart. Too little, too late, cowboy.
