Senate Democrats Stick By Ted Stevens

Here’s a thought.

Senate Democrats have announced that they intend to roll over on new drilling because people are upset about high gas prices, and heaven forbid they get tagged with responsibility for them in November. (We need that subpoena power, don’t forget.)

Meanwhile, Ted Stevens is indicted for taking bribes from Veco, a major player in the oil industry. And Richard Frigging Perle decides he’s going to get into the oil business. Public confidence in the whole energy scam is, as it were, a wee bit low.

Rather than coming to Stevens’ defense like he’s a fellow frat boy unfairly tagged with a DUI, how about they all just STFU and get out of the way of that runaway train barreling down on them.

Is it really that hard to think through?

Two words they should acclimate themselves to. "Senator Begich."

Has a nice ring to it.
