Mr. Bush Should Pardon Paris Hilton

Finally the president visited a country where he is not vilified. It must be a relief for George. So far on his convenient trip he's offended everyone he's met, including the Pope:
US President George W Bush drew gasps at the Vatican on Saturday by referring to Pope Benedict XVI as "sir" instead of the expected "His Holiness", pool reporters said.

And this trip was supposed to get him away from his problems at home. Like immigration. And then there is Iraq.

The U.S. military situation in Iraq has gotten so bad that our troops are being forced to fight alongside insurgents rather than Iraqi troops, whom are not trusted, in order to defeat al Qaeda. Its no wonder the administration is trying to manufacture terror threats in a desperate attempt to divert attention from an unraveling White House. What would George, Inc. do if Paris weren't dominating the headlines. And since Prez isn't going to pardon Libby maybe he should consider it in the case of Ms. Hilton. After all, they have "much in common.":
Like Paris he moves from one folly and misadventure to another without regard to the consequences, never suffering remorse or understanding the consequences of his acts.

There is another similarity: both have accomplished very little in life. They can thank being born into wealth for where they are now. They are both products of the tabloid age. The media would be better off detailing the tragic life of Kelsey Smith. Who had her's cut short. No one will remember her; but they will remember someone who did less for her community, even after she is old and wrinkled.

There are some spectacular achievements the administration can point to. Whether these achievements are anything to brag to daddy about is another question:
Across Iraq, millions of people are looking for safer places to live, and not finding them. The United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) reported last week that 4.2 million Iraqis have been forced out of their homes.

The refugee crisis in Iraq must be some kind of record. When the president is all said and done the record books will be filled with his "achievements.":
The Iraqi refugee crisis is now surpassing in numbers anything ever seen in the Middle East, including the expulsion or flight of the Palestinians in 1948.
