Jose Compean and Ignacio Ramos, and giving everybody else a goose egg!
Knock me over with a flippin' feather! I simply can't believe it.
I thought for sure that there would be pardons for Karl Rove and Alberto Gonzales for their roles in the shenanigans that went on in the Justice Department.
I thought Rumsfeld and Big Dick himself might get preemptory pardons for authorizing interrogation techniques that are clearly in violation of the Geneva Convention.
I thought former Alaska Senator Ted Stevens might get a pardon for his seven bribery convictions.
I thought there would be pardons for the myriad of bit-player schmucks convicted or suspected of various mischief: David Safavian, Monica Goodling, et alia.
But, according to reporting done by Michael Isikoff for Newsweek, Bush is through issuing pardons. He's going back to his Texas s**thole, leaving his flunkies to fend for themselves.
John Conyers and his Senate counterpart, Senator Patrick Leahy, can move forward. That means that the Justice Department under Eric Holder could get involved, that we could see investigations and even indictments handed down to former Bush administration officials...
...unless, of course, somebody cut a deal...
