Should treason be pardoned?...

(Home sick as I write this - yuck!)

I don't know how much you've been following the news about the "outing" of Valerie Plame and how Mr. Fitzgerald's investigation leads all the way back to the lies we were told about Iraq leading up to the horrible war we now fight. I know I haven't mentioned it nearly enough.

Indictments will be coming down soon on quite a few people in (burning) Bush's staff. These charges will, more likely than not, be for treason and conspiracy. Now, historically, Republican administrations (from Nixon, to Ford, to Reagan, to Bush the first) will try to pardon their cronies who fall on a sword for them. Representative John Conyers has drafted a letter to Shrub asking that he respect the courts and not pardon his cronies.

Here's your opportunity to sign such a letter.

I'm thinking that we should all be able to agree on respecting a court ruling on treason... but that's just me.

Sorry you're still under the weather.
Aren't you glad you're not smoking too? :-)

Thanks for posting this letter.
I'm not home sick, but the whole Traiter-gate makes me wanna puke.

Bastards.
Slimy, sick bastards.
