The in-clement governor

That’s Governor Gutshot to the right-wing sweetheart Laura Ingraham:

.  .  . "In Minnesota, I don't think I've ever voted for clemency. We've given out pardons for things after everybody has served out their term, but again, usually for more minor offenses. But clemency, certainly not. Commutation of sentence, certainly not.”

Spot called the clemency shown by then-Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee toward the man – a black man, no less – who recently killed four police officers a bit of good news for Tim Pawlenty. Tim apparently sees it that way!

We needn’t have worried about Gutshot being vulnerable on this issue. He never cuts anybody any slack, even if they’re merely sick or poor.
