You know, sometimes, during the past eight years, I’ve thought that president Bush was evil. Sometimes, insane. Sometimes a tool of big business, and sometimes, a weirdo. But his latest Hanukkah Greetings tells me what the truth is. For the past eight years, we’ve had Frank Drebin as our president.
You remember Frank Drebin, the cop Leslie Nielson played in Police Squad (in Color)? That’s our Mr. Bush. People said they voted for him because he’d be a great guy to sit down and have a beer with. Well, just think about it. They elected a guy you’d be afraid to lend your lawnmover to because you think he might hurt himself with it–oh yes, it’s possible, just try to clear the blades while the ignition is still on. Worse than that, he’d probably hurt you along with it…and probably run over half a dozen squirrels to boot.

Congress Must Debate The Implications Of A Bush Self-Pardon
From USALONE: Many people have been asking us, “Could Bush actually pardon himself?”. Would it be despicable? Sure it would. Would it be shameless and cowardly? Yes, that and that too. But all those adjectives fit Bush like O.J.’s glove before it shrunk from being soaked completely in blood. Which means he is absolutely is planning on doing it.
And only impeachment could stop it. We need to talk about this. We need Congress to talk about this. And Congress is in session this week, so we need you to speak out this week while there is still
Impeach Now Action Page
From Democrats.com: President Bush not to pardon senior administration officials for crimes the President authorized. It notes:
President George W. Bush may have committed crimes involving the mistreatment of detainees, the extraordinary rendition of individuals to countries known to engage in torture, illegal surveillance of United States citizens, unlawful leaks of classified information, obstruction of justice, political interference with the conduct of the Justice Department, and other illegal acts
Bush has been urged to grant preemptive pardons to senior administration officials who might face criminal prosecution for actions taken in the course of their official duties…
Rep. Nadler’s leadership is crucial because he chairs the House Judiciary Committee’sÂ SubcommitteeÂ on the Constitution, Civil Rights, and Civil Liberties Â and can use his credibility and clout to move the resolution forward either during the lame duck session in December or when the next Congress convenes on January 6.
So our next step is to persuade as many Representatives as possible to co-sponsor H.Res. 1531. Please sign our new petition.
We will be taking off the rest of the week for Thanksgiving. Y’all have a great turkey day.!
Well, it seems that Bush is now attempting the ultimate fart in our collective faces. After having broken god only knows how many laws, and committed Human Rights violations left and right, he’s now attempting to pardon, not only those who followed his orders, but himself.
If Bush Pardons Himself or His Subordinates Attorneys, Scholars, Activist Groups Call for Impeachment
This assumption of regal power must finally stop. Even Henry II had to do penance for the murder of St. Thomas a Becket. If Bush is allowed to pardon himself, democracy in the United States will have ceased and instead of a President, we will elect a tyrant every four years.
