Alaska Politicians Not Only Do Not Understand the Meaning of the Word “Gift” – they also don’t understand the meaning of the term “Convicted”
From the "When I became a Repub, I drank the delusional Kool-aid(tm) at the door":
Sen. Ted Stevens says he is not a convicted felon, at least until the appeal process is over.
"I’ve not been convicted yet," the Alaska Republican insisted Thursday in a meeting with the editorial board of the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner. "There’s not a black mark by my name yet, until the appeal is over and I am finally convicted, if that happens. If that happens, of course I’ll do what’s right for Alaska and for the Senate … I don’t anticipate it happening, and until it happens I do not have a black mark."
Ted – I think we are going to take up a collection and get you a copy of the latest Websters Unabridged Dictionary so that you have something to read while you are in prison…because you and seemingly every politician in Alaska don’t seem to have a very good basic vocabulary. I think whoever is the Alaska State Commissioner of Education needs to take a good hard look at the language arts component in Alaska public schools.
