In today’s department of “Ain’t Gonna Happen,” Chelsea (formerly Bradley) Manning has requested a presidential pardon. The request is either for a commutation of his/her 35-year sentence to time served or an outright pardon.

Bradley Manning wants to become a woman and be known as Chelsea Manning. Maybe he thinks he can sneak out of Leavenworth that way?
Meanwhile, the NYT has an editorial denouncing his sentence as “excessive.”
