Quote of the Day

I have great respect for the Senator. He needs to be heard across America. His voice, his experience, his passion needs to be heard across America--so that Alaska can contribute more."

Sarah Palin

Ted Stevens was convicted today of on all five counts. Stevens knew the gifts (aka bribes) he was taking were illegal.

Sen. Ted Stevens (R-Alaska), it turns out, was prescient. Here's what he said two years ago in a secretly recorded phone conversation with Bill Allen, his longtime friend (whom he now may wish he had never met): "The worst that can happen to us is we run up a bunch of legal fees, and might lose and we might have to pay a fine, might have to serve some time in jail. I hope to Christ it never gets to that.... I don't think we have done anything wrong."
