Whither Karla Faye Tucker?

Scooter gets the royal treatment but a woman who not only finds the lord but repents gets this:

In the weeks before the execution, Bush says, a number of protesters came to Austin to demand clemency for Karla Faye Tucker. "Did you meet with any of them?" I ask. Bush whips around and stares at me. "No, I didn't meet with any of them", he snaps, as though I've just asked the dumbest, most offensive question ever posed. "I didn't meet with Larry King either when he came down for it. I watched his interview with Tucker, though. He asked her real difficult questions like, 'What would you say to Governor Bush?'" "What was her answer?" I wonder. "'Please,'" Bush whimpers, his lips pursed in mock desperation, "'don't kill me.'" I must look shocked — ridiculing the pleas of a condemned prisoner who has since been executed seems odd and cruel — because he immediately stops smirking.

I don't know, might make a cynic think Bush's brand of chritianity isn't so fucking christian after all. I've never really bought into the whole notion of Christ dying for our sins thing but sump'n tells me there's a whole lotta pain coming down the pike when we have so called leaders like W running the show. That or we did something really bad to deserve it. What a colossal fuck he is.
