So let me get this straight . . . Back in October Senator Ted Stevens was convicted on 7 counts of trying to hide more than $250,000 in free home renovations and other "gifts" from a wealthy oil contractor. Sarah Palin, then Republican VP candidate told CNBC during an interview that Stevens should resign and allow the state to elect someone else. Low and behold, Ted Stevens appeals and is no longer a convicted felon. He is exonerated by Attorney General Eric Holder and the new Obama DOJ due to a most screwed up FBI and Bush Justice Department investigation - - - a Justice Department Stevens himself called highly "corrupt and illiterate" that was run by a bunch of "Kindergarten Cops". This is the same Department of Justice that had been marked by highly politically managed prosecutions of white collar crime through its Public Integrity Section, while looking the other way when it came to the Enron's of the world and corporate corruption - - - not too mention politically discriminatory hiring practices of United States Attorney's, AND the unprecedented midterm dismissal of 7 US Attorney's in December of 2006, those having been targeted for dismissal in an effort to impede investigations of Republican politicians; while others were targeted for their failure to initiate investigations that would damage Democratic politicians or hamper Democratic-leaning voters. Bush Attorney General, Alberto Gonzales described the affair as "an overblown personnel matter." This was apparently not the case as Gonzales wound-up resigning one year later. http://gawker.com/5193794/ How ironic that Steven's helped vote to confirm Bush's Attorney General, Alberto Gonzales. Anyway, Obama's new Atty General comes aboard in February and realizes how screwed up the DOJ is, and admits defeat and drops all charges against Stevens. Now, Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin says that Ted Stevens deserves another shot at his Senate seat. So, Palin is advocating a "do-over" Special Election that would pit Stevens against recently elected Alaskan Senator, Mark Begich. "Alaskans deserve to have a fair election not tainted by some announcement that one of the candidates was convicted fairly of seven felonies, when in fact it wasnât a fair conviction." So, Palin has joined the state GOP in calling for U.S. Senator Mark Begich to resign and run against former Senator Ted Stevens in a special election. Never mind that Begich was elected by the people of Alaska, and not appointed to his Senate seat. Gee, I don't seem to recall that Americans got a "do-over" when Dubya's approval rating collapsed into the "cellar" during his second term. THAT Palin logic. It's something else!!!
