Gannon/Gucker Proves His Ineptitude

JamesJeff GuckertGannon continues his freefall decent into absurdity by showing off his mad journalism skillz on his website, www.jeffgannon.com.

In his fake "briefing room", he asks (himself?) a question that he thinks should be asked in the White House Briefing Room.

Today's "question":
"Terri Schiavo, a brain-damaged woman in Florida is due to be starved to death now that a judge will allow her husband to remove the feeding tube that has been keeping her alive. The President's brother, Gov. Jeb Bush has been trying to prevent this from happening. The President has the absolute power to grant pardons. Will he intervene to save Terri Schiavo from what is essentially a death sentence?"
Maybe he didn't learn this in his $50 weekend stint at the right-wing Leadership Institute, but Presidential pardons are reserved for felony convictions or military court martials, not for civil cases. Schiavo's case is a civil case, therefore, the assertion that President Bush could sweep down and use his power to pardon to interfere is not only absurd, but unconstitutional as well.

Now, GannonGuckert may think that the President is above the law, but us here in the reality-based community know full well that he isn't. And it's the job of the press to keep the President in check, not to egg him on and urge him to violate the Constitution. But then again, no one ever claimed GannonGuckert was a responsible "journalist."

Not only that, but Schiavo isn't brain-damaged, she is brain-dead. 0% chance of recovery.

Check out this link: cache link. Further proof that Gannon has never written an original word in his whole "journalist" or "blogger" "career."
