Huck Fin-ished

If only the wish could be father to the thought! If this cop killer case doesn't end Mike Huckabee's political career once and for all, there is no justice. Here's a GREAT blog post that rounds up Huck's horrible record on pardons. Follow all the lengths within to read about the huge numbers of clemencies he issued, the arrogance with which he and his staff approached the issue, the lack of transparency on the subject, and the tragic results from some of his clemencies, including in the horrid case of Wayne DuMond, who raped and raped and raped again. No amount of stagecraft featuring backlit crosses and folksy aphorisms should hide Huckabee's culpability for such horrendous judgment.
