Georgia: Calling on ... the President?

UPI announces that the NAACP is considering asking President Obama to violate the U.S. Constitution by granting clemency to an Troy Davis convicted of a state crime, who has exhausted all other appeals. And, hey, why not? But, there is humble recognition that such a request is a "long shot." Indeed. The President has a hard enough time using the power constitutionally, in petty cases, much less in true the spirit of checks and balances! See story here.

I saw Michael Moore wanted Obama to send in the National Guard to stop the execution. If we are going to go unconstitutional, a battle between the National Guard and the Alabama State Police would at least have made better television.
