It seems that Conrad Black has not given up hope of getting his fleeting moment of brutish triumph. It's being reported that Lord Black is petitioning President Bush for a commutation of his sentence. He's not alone, obviously, and the percentages are not with him - the US Pardon Attorney has received some 10,000 petitions, of which just 163 have resulted in Presidential action. Still, Conrad probably thinks his chances are better with the outgoing Monkey King than they would be with President Obama.

The fact that he hasn't been shivved in prison tells me that nobody's trying hard enough.

Apparently he finds his `co-residents' `affable.' You know, I might have a smidgeon more than no sympathy for him at all if he didn't sound as if he was at a country club.

Bush had better not pardon Black, especially when he should be granting pardons to border patrol agents Ramos and Compean instead -- the two agents who were sent to prison for shooting a low life drug smuggler in the ass. The smuggler claimed his civil rights were violated while he was committing a crime. Awww. Poor guy.

The agents were arrested for doing their jobs, while the smuggler gets medical care on American tax dollars, then set free to return to business as usual.

As it turns out, Bush is pals with the District Attorney who prosecuted the Ramos/Compean case. So guess who won't be getting pardons.

It's an upside down world.

I wonder who's friends with the cocaine smuggler.

I have a suspicion Bush will be using up all his pardons on his former aides.
