Marc Rich By Any Other Name would still be...

Oh gosh, Bush doesn't do one better that Clinton's Marc Rich pardon, it actually looks worse.

...a Brooklyn, N.Y., man, Isaac Robert Toussie, received the legal equivalent of a lump of coal.

Toussie, convicted of making false statements to the Housing and Urban Development Department and of mail fraud, was among 19 people pardoned Tuesday.

But after learning in news reports that Toussie's father had donated tens of thousands of dollars to the Republican Party a few months ago, as well as other information, the White House issued an extraordinary statement Wednesday saying the president was reversing his decision on Toussie's case.

It's like I've always said, loyality to Bush is a one-way street. Unless one happens to be a oilman, donating to the Repug party is really a dead end deal. It probably all ended up in Sarah Palin’s Neiman Marcus wardrobe anyway, which is the only store the benefited handsomely during the oil party reign this dismal Christmas season, at least for everyone else out there not evolved in big oil looting and pillaging of our national treasury.
