Bush Spares Turkeys But Humans Aren't so Lucky

GW participated yesterday in the usual ritual of sparing the Thanksgiving Day turkey. As we all know by now, he loves turkeys. Too bad his love does not extend to fellow human beings. As of today, 2869 Americans have died in Iraq, and another 21,778 have been wounded.

And he was very reluctant to use his pardoning power when he was governor of Texas. Born-again Bush mocked murderess Karla Faye Tucker. "Please ... please don't kill me," he mimicked as he ignored the condemned woman's petition for clemency. And when he argued against hate crimes for people who murdered their victims, the "compassionate conservative" proclaimed (with a sneer),"It will be hard to punish them any worse after they get put to death."

Happy Thanksgiving! See you Monday.

It also demeans the pardon process.

ANd it doesn't mean they won't be serving turkey at the White House. It'll just be a different one. And maybe a ham too.

Its time to end this silly tradition of pardoning turkies.

Well there are already enough turkeys in the White house they figured why do we need two more.

W is just warming up the pardon pen for January 09, when he is gonna be very, very, very, busy.
I say Tom Delay, Duke Cunningham, and Dick cheney are the headliners!

Can't wait to see the "shocked & awed" faces of the religious right, when, in the end, its revealed that Bush is actually the anti-Christ!
