  •  A blunder Stevens was likely to make (0+ / 0-)

    The biggest tactical blunder of this election was Stevens pushing for a speedy trial.

    It's pretty clear Stevens had somewhat impaired reality testing and had come to think of his Senate seat as something he held by divine right.

    I'm relieved the sloppy job the prosecutors did still managed to lead to conviction on all counts.  If appeals lead to a new trial, would new prosecutors have a chance to play that tape of him talking to someone about how "We could go to jail for this"?

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