I Beg Your Pardon

Chokin' the turkey til it pukes.Today, George W. Bush pardoned twoThanksgiving turkeys named Marshmallow and Yam in front of a horde of reporters. By the end of his term, barring any change of heart, or maybe DNA evidence, he will have pardoned 16 turkeys.

And you figure, he’ll probably pardon at least half a dozen people in connection with TraitorGate when his term in office winds down.

Does anyone know how many people on Death Row he pardoned while he was governor of Texas? I’m serious, does anybody have that number?

Too bad those inmates weren’t cute and cuddly and associated with some holiday.
