Craig resignsHmm, remind me. What exactly did Ted Kennedy plead guilty to? What was he convicted of?
Ted Kennedy, you're next.
As Blueblogger has already pointed out, just two days ago she seemed to grasp the distinction, when she wrote:
Enough with the "he's innocent until proven guilty" stuff and "if he did it" stuff that I've been hearing on some conservative shows. Regardless of what he says now, Larry Craig PLEADED GUILTY in a court of law and was convicted. That should mean something. He's not innocent until proven guilty. He's guilty...Actually, Craig wasn't just accused. He pleaded guilty -- as McBride seemed to know just a paragraph or two earlier.
Bill Clinton was accused of raping a woman. Ted Kennedy was accused of leaving a woman to die. They enjoy respect from the Democratic party and the media. Larry Craig was accused of nudging the foot of an undercover cop, and the Democrats want to put him in a stockade in the public square.
This from a college journalism instructor who's married to a longtime prosecutor -- a prosecutor who is thinking about running for the state Supreme Court?
Perhaps said prosecutor should do a little remedial instruction with his spouse on the criminal justice system and how it works.
