My Heart Does Not Bleed for Ted Stevens

though it is quite odd how quickly his party affiliation is identified in an AP story about his indictment on charges.

When a democrat's party affiliation is often buried many paragraphs deep in a story on corrupt progressives, it takes AP writer Lara Jakes Jordan all of eight words to announce his Republicanism.

Ted Stevens exemplifies much of what is wrong in Washington today. Pork, pork, pork. That he tried to get himself a little slice of bacon for himself cannot be much of a surprise.

Perhaps the charges are warranted and perhaps not. Regardless, the best case scenario would be for a true conservative to be able to wrestle this seat back before the leading Democrat, Mark Begich, can swipe another Senatorial vote away from a Republican Party that has largely decided it would rather govern like a Democratic one.
