The media should stop asking George W. Bush if he ever used cocaine.
It has become obvious that he did -- he just won't say when.

The question now should be: Mr. Bush, if elected president, will you
issue pardons to the tens of thousands of men and women currently in
prison as a result of cocaine use prior to their 28th birthday, if
they state, as you have done, that they have now grown up?

If not, Mr. Bush, why is your situation of having achieved adulthood
at age 40 any different from theirs?
