"This president rewards loyalty"

[Posted by reader_iam]

Like, in terms of pardons, this would be a new thing.

(Psssst: No one's pardoned Scooter Libby yet.

Hint: Research pardons. Is it wise to be so quick to draw attention to pardons, generically, when we're not there yet, given that it will draw attention to, shall we say, rather unfortunate pardons that are, in fact--well--historical fact?)


Added back: This post was written in the spirit of putting aside the point--the premise--and even my disagreement with the premise--that this president does indeed reward loyalty. Now, that would be a good and lively discussion, addressing that point, about this and other presidents, and presidents in general, and... . No one really wants to have that discussion.

Well, O.K. So it goes.
