1.) That isn't a pardon. It's a part of a piece of legislation proposed and approved(?) by the Legislative branch of the U.S. government. It is not a violation of a separation of powers, it is two powers protecting each other.
2.) Shit happens. Everyone knows the winners write the rules. Nobody ever expected Bush or Clinton to hang.
3.) This is a Democracy. You didn't vote against him hard enough.
4.) I, personally, didn't vote. I did this as a show of no confidence for our all-or-nothing system. Therefore I, doing the honorable thing and showing no part of this injustice, am not liable.
5.) YOU, on the other hand, placed your confidence in the current system. The system failed. You put your faith in it. I put my faith in failure.
6.) Me: 1
7.) You: 0
8.) Bush: everything else
