Gov Huckabee Clears Keith Richards' Record

Rolling Stone Keith Richards is likely getting a pardon from the State of Arkansas. Seems he was convicted of reckless driving through the "Land of Opportunity" 31 years ago. (It's the "Natural State" these days).

Gov Mike Huckabee (R-AR) submitted an application for clemency on Mr Richard's behalf earlier this year. The state Parole Board approved it on July 3. It's awaiting the Governor's signature. Gov Huckabee is often mentioned among potential Republican Presidental candidates in 2008. (Yahoo!)

In America, all are supposed to be equal in the eyes of the law. This is a case of "It's not what you did; it's who you are."

How is this any different from Slick Willie pardoning his cokehead brother?

How can you claim to be a member of the Law and Order Party if you ignore the law and equal protection?

All this does is shine a light on the fact that in Arkansas, some are more equal than others, and some are above the law.
