Should Bush Pardon Himself Against WarCrimes?

tags: , , , ,

Once more proving that he is not a man, but instead, is a rich diaper-wearing mamma's boy, George Bush passes a bill that will give himself and his entire white house administration retroactive immunity against prosecution for possible war crimes! Don't you wish we could all do that? [1:53]

What do you think about this?

Well, I think that if you're going to put up a video which is obviously from before the 2006 elections, it would be nice to include a reference to the bill number or title.

That way we could both read the damned thing for ourselves and find out what it's ultimate fate was.

BTW, even if it passed and was signed into law, if we get a Democratic Congress and administration this year, that provision can be repealed.

If a president can pardon himself, I imagine Nixon would have done it before he resigned.

Even if it did pass, the US could sign up to join the International Court of Justice, and have Bush tried there.

Wouldn't that be fun. :-)
