doesn't this look funny, all small like this? he's so jowly.
Apparently, Ted (R-ipoff) Stevens is now claiming he wasn't convicted of anything, AND he's still tying Iraq and Saddam Hussein to 9/11. Is this his last-minute effort to stand behind Big Dick Cheney (who'll claim there's terrorists on Mars if he can make some Halliburton money off it), in order to curry White House favor and possibly get a pardon?
I guess when you've sold your dignity and ethics for a few hundred thou in house renovations, you'll pretty much say anything.
The one thing no one else is asking is this: why the fuck does ANYONE even ask stupid questions like this anymore? "Knowing what you know now, do you think that the country of Iraq and Saddam Hussein played a role in the 9/11 attack on the United States?"
At his debate against challenger Mark Begich, who's trying to win Stevens' senate seat, not only did the moderator ask this idiotic question, but Stupid Stevens said, "I know more than you think I know, and I believe they did." According to the transcript (at the first link), Begich then said, "I don't believe they did."
The moderators and the reporters who still ask shit questions like this should be ashamed of themselves, embarrassed that they're so obviously trying to lick Dick (heh), and humiliated that they're letting themselves be used by a White House filled with lying war criminals.
