    The wording is inflammatory and off point. A pogrom? No, I don't think so. Comparing it to Scooter Libby makes no sense.

    I don't know what this phrase means: "non-paying posit hospital"

    I would gladly have signed a simply and clearly written petition but can not sign this.

    It is difficult to believe that Siegelman is going back before Judge Fuller. It is well-documented that Fuller is a partisan hack.

    It is difficult to believe this case has gone on for so long.

    Where is the Justice Department in all of this? Where is Eric Holder?

    Why is there no justice?

    Does Obama and Holder not understand what it means to hold state power? LBJ would not have let this stand. A strong president would not have let this stand.

    •  So write a non-inflammatory petition. (0+ / 0-)

      I'll sign it.
      That nonsense phrase should hav read "a non-paying position on a hospital oversight board".  
      The comparison with Scooter Libby is just that Libby was spared any time in jail, while Siegelman has already served, since the judge wouldn't stay that part of the sentence pending appeal.

      We're all pretty strange one way or another; some of us just hide it better. "Normal" is a dryer setting.

      •  Besides, being polite is out of style in politics (0+ / 0-)

        Obama tried it for 3 years.  The results were so poor it gave polite a bad name.
