Anyone recall this scene from The Simpsons from way back in its first or second season (when George H.W. Bush was president):
Well good grief:
But on Thursday, his last full day in office, Obama announced 330 more commutations, for nonviolent drug offenders, bringing his total number of clemencies to 1,715. He has granted commutations to more people than the past 12 presidents combined, including 568 inmates with life sentences. He has granted 212 pardons. His final group of clemencies was the most Obama granted in a day and the most granted on one day in U.S. history.
This makes Bill Clinton’s disgraceful use of the pardon power upon leaving office look minor league.
Maybe someone should put RFID tags on every object in the White House?
