First Paris, now Scooter. Who's next?

Paris Hilton got plenty of publicity for her cushy treatment in jail (and particularly for being let out after just a few days). Now, the one scapegoat for the entire Bush administration got off easy - instead of 36 months in prison and a $250k fine, Bush commutes his sentence so he only has to pay the fine - and what do you want to bet it won't come from his personal checking account. I would say it reminds me of Ford's pardon of Nixon, but in that case, the pardon really did just silence the worthless hullabaloo whereas this just demonstrates that the administration is acting above the law. Disgusting. When can we impeach these jokers?
