Should We Expect A Commutation?

By The Reverend Published: July 19, 2007

What is it with people who work for Dick Cheney? What's the basis of hiring aides for the Vice's office? Do they have to, like, swear they will commit a felony before they are hired? What gives?

A former White House official who took top secret documents from U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney's office and gave them to opposition figures in the Philippines was sentenced on Wednesday to 10 years in prison.

Philippine-born Leandro Aragoncillo, a U.S. citizen and former Marine, pleaded guilty last year to taking the documents that included details on threats against U.S. government interests and military personnel in the Philippines. Link

I'll take a wild guess here that Decider Guy will NOT commute Aragoncillo's prison sentence anytime soon. The reason? Aragoncillo wasn't covering up for Bush or Cheney when he committed his felony. If he had been covering for the Deceptive Duo, we would probably have a commutation announcement today.

The rules are relatively easy to comprehend when it comes to understanding this White House. If you violate the law or the Constitution while attempting to

cover the ass protect either the Commander Guy or the Dick, then expect a commutation of your sentence. Otherwise, forget about it. Easy rules to follow.
