Understatement of the Century?
HE WILL NOT BE MISSED: Sen. Stevens guilty on all counts, career in peril.Heh.
UPDATE: Well, Colin Powell may miss him:
One of the nation's best-known retired Army generals, Colin Powell, described Sen. Ted Stevens in court today as a "trusted individual" and a man with a "sterling" reputation.
"He was someone whose word you could rely on," said Powell, secretary of state in President Bush's first term, who self-deprecatingly described himself as someone who retired as the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and then "dabbled a bit in diplomacy."
That Colin Powell. What a great judge of character.
Is there anything worse than a corrupt pol who puts himself before his party and country? So can someone explain to me why Obama is leading?
