Unreported: the Bush pardons this last week.

Bush pardons 14 on day DeLay is indicted....

What better day to slip in a few more "get out of jail free" cards? Of the 14 Bush pardons delivered yesterday, three were for drug charges, four were white collar crimes. And amazingly, one of the pardons issued by our "security president" was for this crime: Property damage by use of explosives and destruction of an energy facility; 18 U.S.C. 844(i) and 1366(a)

Taken along with yesterday's diary which reported the decline in federal prosecutions for white collar, drug, and terrorism charges, it makes it very clear that the question Democrats should be asking is "do you feel safer than you did 4 years ago?"
