Cartoon #221: “White House Pardons”

Title: White House Pardons; Text: The Annual Pardon of the White House Turkeys (Bush stands before a turkey with raised arms; in line behind the turkey is Karl Rove, Tom Delay and Scooter Libby.)

Bush’s critics called for him to promise not to pardon Scooter Libby. Libby faces a 30-year prison sentence if found guilty of perjury. U.S. Presidents can and do pardon convicted criminals near the end of their terms in office. But this year, Bush may opt for grouping Libby and others in with his annual Thanksgiving turkey pardon.
