Just like a Democrat and (former) friend of Bill Clinton to pardon a known violent felon on the way out of office.

/How'd I score?

According to an "official investigator," the governator of New Mexico in Billy's time was Lew "Ben Hur" Wallace, who promised him a complete pardon if he testified against three others, which Billy did. The promised pardon never materialized, so now Richardson is obligated to grant it, letting the miscreant one again walk free among us. I shudder for the wrath he shall wreak.

I'll be charitable and give you a 3/10. You lost some major points for referencing past actions of Bill Clinton because most right-wing trolls have the attention span of an ADHD ten-year-old that's been chugging red bull. Also, your spelling and grammar were too good, and you didn't use an exclamation mark.

It's a good start, but you have a lot of room for improvement.

So. Eventually, you will get pardoned. I like where this is going.

Nice critique, but BlowJob Billy will never, ever leave the mouthbreather lexicon. It's sort of a default mode they go into when confronted with confusing things like 'Math' and 'Reality'.

Wow, every damn time Bill Richardson wants a greenlight he just has to mention Billy the Kid somehow. And here I am with 7+ years of striking out.

I live in the area and have visited many of the Billy the Kid historical sites. The more you research what happened the harder it gets to tell the good guys from bad. I don't know about a pardon, but reality is a hell of a lot more complex than what you ever see portrayed in popular media.

I mostly agree with Sudo_Make_Me_A_Sandwich your reference was clever, but too clever (and not as broadly insulting as you need) for trolling purposes.

I would have gone with something like "Just like a lib to coddle a violent felon and make a joke out of the rule of law. If Billy the Kid were alive today he'd have been one of Geithner's advisors."

I agree the Clinton stuff is to long ago so nobody will care, plus hes white.

Just use Obama's name next time (try using all 3 of his names, it will sound scarier) It doesnt really need to even make sense if Obama is in it.

SoxSweekAgain Aw, come on. You have to admit he was the Jim Morrison of his day.


Are you refering to that moron Gov. in FL Charlie Crist? He couldn't win the same election running as a D, R, or I so his last great act was to pardon Jim Morrison. Not like there are any other problems in FL.

trapped on my holster low across my hips,
Two Colt .45's with black plastic grips;
And I'd head west through our neighborhood,
And they'd say,
"Here comes young Billy and he's up to no good."
I rode a trail through the neighbor's backyard,
Shootin' the Bad Guys through my handlebars.
Known for my bravery both far and near,
Bein' late for supper was my only fear.

I miss Billy the Kid!
The times that he had!
The life that he lived!
I guess he must've got caught,
His innocence lost...
I wonder where he is?
I miss Billy the Kid!

These days I don't know whose side to be on;
There's such a thin line between Right and Wrong.
I live and learn, do the best I can,
But there's only so much you can do as a man.

I miss Billy the Kid!

The life that he lived!
I guess he must've got caught,

Santa Fe is filled with useless bureaucrats. The former Sheriff got nailed for taking county property and selling it on ebay. The Chef of police told me his department isn't bound by court orders. The Mayor can't manage to balance the budget. Not to mention the fact that the schools are a joke.

So what's Gov Bill do? Pardon Billy the kid.

Just as the fourth circle of Hell is better than the fifth.

But now we're going to have a new governator, and she will fix everything, and soon everyone in the state will have a pet unicorn.

The story the way I heard it was, Billy surrendered on the understanding he would be set free in a few days; a month at most.

The Governor went back on his word, at which point Billy escaped and two men were killed.

Billy undoubtedly did a lot of bad in his life, but the crime for which he surrendered was one he did not commit.
