The Only Fair Thing to Do




Now that the Obama Justice System has erased the wrongful* felony convictions of former Alaska Republican Ted Stevens, some GOP members are crowing about how they should hold a special election so Stevens can run again against incumbent Democratic Sen. Mark Begich and possibly reclaim his Senate seat.
Nonsense, I say.
Begich won his seat fair and square, and besides, the Republican Bush Justice System screwed up Stevens's case to begin with.
There's only one fair solution for Stevens.
Name him Alaska's new Governor.

*Wrongful, my ass. Prosecutorial ineptitude allowed a guilty crook to go free.

My favorite bit was how then-Sen. Stevens raved about Alberto Gonzalez during his confirmation hearing.
Stupid old fuck.

the rethugs have painted themselves into a corner. it was chimpy's justice department they're bitchin' about now. notice they didn't say a word when don siegelman was railroaded (by they way, why hasn't eric holder thrown that out yet?).

just because uncle ted got off on a technicality doesn't mean he's not guilty. shit, look at his house!

Meanwhile, Sarah Palin's sister-in-law was just arrested in Alaska on multiple charges of breaking into people's homes and stealing hundreds of dollars.
And Levi Johnston was on Tara Banks's show talking about sharing a bedroom with Bristol under the same roof as Sarah.
Can you say "white trash"?

i know! lol!! and she had her little girl with her while she was breaking into houses!

i heard a little bit about what levi had to say, but i hadn't heard the part about his sharing a room with bristol in princess's house. i saw a clip of him talking to tyra and saying that they always used protection, even when she got knocked up. hmmmm, maybe bristol poked a few holes in the condoms to trap poor levi. and, hey, i thought princess and her relgious fanatic ilk don't believe in contraception!

what really gets me more than anything is that they took this kid, schlepped him down from alaska, paraded him around to further princess's political career, and now they have the nerve to call him a publicity whore! for all we know, he really wants to see his kid, and he can't afford to pay lawyers tons of money to take bristol to court. what other alternative does he have but to plead his case in the court of public opinion? while the whole thing is rather tawdry, i don't blame the kid at all for trying to get his side out there.
