Happy 4th of July

Outside of Valentine's Day, it has always been my favorite. We are off to beautiful Perdido Key for the weekend and will return on Monday the 7th.

That can only mean one thing: President Bush will dump a handful of pardons while no one in their right mind will be caring what is going on in the news! Pardon "experts" will be found everywhere while I am chasing my kids up and down the sunny beach.

Oh, and there will be 1-year remembrances of the Scooter Libby commutation (which everyone will call a "pardon"). Likewise, all of the people who predicted Libby would, without a doubt, be pardoned and, afterward, came up with grand theories as to why he wasn't will now predict, once again, that he will be pardoned - failed prognostications and theories notwithstanding! If only Bush had employed respites!

Oh well, I guess that is the stuff that makes politics so fun! As always, the following blogs are highly recommended:

* Capital Defense Weekly
* Concurring Opinions
* Pardon for Scooter Libby?
* Sentencing Law and Policy
* WSJ Law Blog
