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]

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.

Wouldn't that be fun. :-)
