We at the Examiner today say that Bush should pardon Ramos, Compean, Libby,…. and the dreaded Honduran Lobster Three. You’ll see if you read the latter link that the Honduran snared in that, uh, net was represented on appeal by the great Miguel Estrada, who ought to be a federal judge — and WOULD be a judge, probably, if a certain White House counsel named Gonzales had not decided that it was beneath the White House’s dignity to openly fight the Senate’s unprecedented use of filibusters to block judicial nominations, starting with, yes, Estrada.
But I digress. Bush’s failure to pardon any of the people mentioned in the Examiner editorial would make him either a gutless wonder or else just somebody clueless about the meaning of “justice.”
