Ted Stevens Found Guilty

So, I’m checking my email, and this headline grabs my attention-

Senator Stevens’ Career Uncertain After Conviction

Uncertain, After Conviction?!!

Are you Shitting Me?

Shouldn’t the headline read, “Career OVER?”

Forget the “Redistribution of Wealth.”

How about a little Redistribution of Justice?

I wonder what the headline would say if we were talking about “Joe Six Pack?”

  1. yes, true justice would be that the guy goes to jail for an indeterminate amount of time. and, although, while the quote you give above is pretty bizarre, i don’t think it’s worthy of the death penalty or anything.


    these guys always have a comeback. they all have people who still owe them something and will give them a peachy job once they’ve walked the perp walk. look at tom delay!!! shouldn’t he be in jail? but no, he’s on Hardball and advising Republicans.

    also, i just read a few weeks ago that Mark Foley (yeah, THAT mark foley from Florida) was spotted looking tanned and fit having lunch at … get this … the beverly hills hotel!!!

    don’t count on this guy suffering much for his serious crimes and misdemeanors. the only people who suffer in that way are poor people who have no someone in power to pull strings for them after they’ve been convicted.

    well, poor people, and martha stewart.

  2. From the NY Times:

    “Despite being a convicted felon, he is not required to drop out of the race or resign from the Senate. If he wins re-election, he can continue to hold his seat because there is no rule barring felons from serving in Congress. The Senate could vote to expel Stevens on a two-thirds vote.”

    First step: Alaskans must NOT re-elect him. I’m sure he’ll get plenty of votes though. He’s brought A LOT of pork home to Alaska.

  3. If only Ted Stevens had been a poor black kid smoking up or selling a rock of crack, he’d never see the light of day again except to lift weights and sweep the yard.

  4. sarah is next

  5. Yesterday, I shovel-whacked a kid upside the head. Today, my career as a teacher is uncertain. Bummer.

  6. I have a bad case of schadenfreude because of Ted. Come to think of it McCain and Palin’s camps calling each other names makes me giddy with delight.

  7. Stevens talent–no surprise–is shaking the money tree for the constituents back home (although some of the dollars probably fall in his pocket), so he could be re-elected. And I have no doubt that he will never serve a day in jail. Pardon? Why not. But if not, that evil old bastard will die the day before he is to report to the jail just to give a final fuck you to us all. I can live with that.

  8. Taking a few backhanders and bungs is not my problem with Stevens. My problem was his cribbed, affectless and indifferent worldview

  9. It’s amazing that a convicted felon can’t vote but can still serve in the Senate. There needs to be a change!
