The old bastard is still corrupt

So, it would appear that Sen. Ted 'Tubes' Stevens is going to have his conviction vacated because of prosecutorial misconduct. Which means the bubba's Bush had in place at Justice went a bit overboard.

It does not, however, make him innocent which he is very much far from. OF COURSE, that hasn't stopped the not-so-bright folks in the AK Republican Party from demanding a new election to try and reclaim his seat.

For them, I'd just like to make one small point : The voters of Alaska are, on balance, stupid. They elected that idiot Governor Palin, which alone speaks volumes. 10 years ago, FORMER Senator Stevens could have been video'd eating a baby and he still would have been reelected. Even if he'd taken the extra step of sending a copy of the DVD to every voter in the state.

This election wasn't about his conviction. They already knew he was crooked and let him get away with it for a while. But they'd had enough.

Our local paper also seemed to believe that this situation vindicated Stevens. Which was odd because the Amarillo newspaper has historically been a fan of prosecutorial misconduct.
