I have nothing to say except that Orval Faubus may be the greatest name for a poltician (or a rock band) ever.

What is it with guys from Arkansas running an executive branch and then pardoning a bunch of scumbags? Must be something in the water down there.

He's a fine governor. Or, at least better than Asa! would be.

At least Huckabee has a serious public health bent.

When I read that other governors name I at first saw "Fatbus"

Headline : He's also issued more pardons and commutations than any other governor in Arkansas history

Article : The paper also reported that former Govs. Winthrop Rockefeller and Orval Faubus issued more commutations than Huckabee - and for smaller prison populations.

You'd think that the submitter might have at least RTFA'ed?

The question here is whether the dudes being pardoned were in fact bad enough to rescue the president from ninjas.
