...don't even ignore 'em.

Look. Jerry Ford pardoned Richard Nixon, before he was even charged with anything. George H.W. Bush pardoned the Iran Contra guys. Bill Clinton pardoned Mark Rich, one of his bigtime money people. If we want to change this odious practice, we have to get serious about helping our Senators and Representatives enforce the laws they make. So, look to yourself, not at the hype. We're all to blame for putting up with it. So, get off your duff and do something about it.

[AFTERTHOUGHT: Actually, I should have said, If we want to change this odious corruption of this much-needed clemency power...]
