    The political process, like public opinion, doesn't hold to the same standards as the law.

      I said he was innocent because of a warrantless wiretap.

      However, more popular folk than me have been screaming for his head ever since the crooked bushie DOJ first indicted him.

      There was a time, let's call it "The Sixties," when people were just a little bit, shall we say, suspicious of what they saw and heard out of the White House.

      In this New Hunky-Dory American Century, failures like Patrick Fitzgerald, sent to prosecute anti-American espionage within the bush Administration, can fling mud on anybody he wants and my dear fellow Democrats swallow it hook line 'n' sinker.

      Nobody looks at Gov. Siegelman and says, "Wait, they've falsely convicted a dude.  How can I believe them?"

      Nobody says "They've datamined every email and phone call, and even started BEFORE 9/11.  Why should I trust them."

      Nobody says, "They watched and did nothing while bloated bodies floated around the streets of New Orleans.  I think I'll seek a second opinion."

      Nope.

      They bow before the words of the most corrupted and murdering bunch of America-hating thugs on this soil since we were slaughtering the Red Coats.

      Cynicism isn't mean.

      It is, to say the least, PRUDENT.

        Although I know his attorney has claimed this. I suppose it's a legitimate question, though.

          But two Democratic Govs were brought down by wiretaps last year and now KO and Tice were discussing the depth of wiretapping done by the crooks.

          And as I recall, EVERYTHING was warrantlessly wiretapped.

          And miracle of miracles, no Republicans were snagged!
