Trying to guess Haley Barbour’s future political aspirations has been the state sport for some time now.

Will he try for the U.S. Senate? Vice president? President? Chairman of RJR Nabisco?

Well, Haley’s move this week to free a murderer who’s been working at the Governor’s Mansion brings up another, heretofore unmentioned option: Maybe Haley doesn’t want to do squat, just retire to that big lake in Yazoo City, enjoy his grandbabies and let Marsha teach him how to play golf.

‘Cause, ladies and gentlemen, there just ain’t no way to figure the governor’s effort to free Michael David Graham would ever be anything but a big anvil around his neck, should he attempt to run for anything. Anybody remember Willie Horton?
