Pardon?

Paris Hilton is asking for a pardon from Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.

In a message that went up Monday on her MySpace page and reported in the New York Post, the hotel heiress writes (in her own spelling): "My friend Joshua started this petition, please help and sihn it. i LOVE YOU ALL!!!!!" The petition, directed to California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, asks that Hilton be pardoned from her sentence of 45 days in jail for violating the terms of her probation by driving with a suspended license.

Please…I’m sure the governator has nothing else on his plate right now.

I will admit that there is something refreshing about a celebrity getting treated like the rest of us. Is that wrong? Is that an unChristian feeling to have?

  1. Did Jesus say “Governor, please don’t”? Even innocent, He was found guilty and knew the sentence had to be carried out. It would be more un-Christian, I think, to say that lawbreakers do NOT have to serve their sentence if they are famous, rich, pretty (which she isn’t, by the way), etc.
