Great ideas, number 4928

Cobb, over at The Conservative Brotherhood, came up with a great plan to deal with Tookie William's clemency plea. This might actually work until the condemned got to the SCOTUS and they ruled it cruel and unusual. It might be worth thinking about a more viable version of this one though...
I PROPOSE that Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, rather than unequivocally deciding to save Stanley Tookie Williams or send the convicted murderer to his death next week, instead conditionally postpone his execution.

The governor should then immediately convene a summit, including not only clergy, grass-roots leaders and elected representatives such as Maxine Waters and Diane Watson, but also current and former Bloods and Crips. The deal: He will spare Williams' life, but only as long as these leaders can keep young black men from killing each other.

Go read the rest.
