Let me see if I have this straight?

Ted Stevens not only wants his trial to happen quickly but also to happen in Anchorage….well, there you go. You can’t buy that kind of wonderful campaign publicity. Right next to your “Re-elect Ted Stevens” ad in the paper will be the story on the latest sleazy revelations from his trial. Yep. That should help his campaign no end. AND….do it in Anchorage where the local media will be all over it like butter on toast.  Maybe Ted’s thinking he’s more interested in an acquittal so he doesn’t spend his waning years in jail than in actually getting re-elected and figures his chances are better in Alaska. Hmmm…he might want to rethink that strategy on the off chance he hasn’t sensed just how disgusted a lot of people are with him.
