93. the case was adjudicated to the nth degree, simply because he was famous
Edited on Tue Jul-22-08 02:40 PM by librechik
the judge found no reason to jail the man, and believe me, there was a lusty chorus of RWers, even then, who felt lynching was the answer for that particular accidental death. Meanwhile, Laura Bush kills her boyfriend in a car accident and gets away Scot free. Why should Ted pay if she didn't?
But why are they still raking over this 45 year old incident? It is because there are SO FEW democrat transgressions, in comparison to the lengthy list of Republican criminals and convicts. BTW, an accidental death is NOT CRIMINAL, and leaving the scene, while disoriented, is also not a crime.
Meanwhile, Kissinger goes free after overseeing thousands of innocent deaths in East Timor. Bush Sr gets away with killing thousands in Central America over his tainted term--NOT ACCIDENTAL DEATHS, BUT "COLLATERAL DAMAGE" from deliberate attacks on our part.
Still, why bother. your conversation partner is obviously deluded and woefully misinformed, since he apparently hasn't read a newspaper since 1969. Did he hear about Rumsfeld ordering torture of innocents? OK to crush a child's testicles to force the parent to "confess?" We are supposed to drop that discussion and talk about an ancient incident because he can't stand talking about the endless crimes of his own side? Can we talk about this?http://groups.google.com/group/talk.politics.misc/brows

I believe there were 56 convictions of corrupt politicians in Reagan's administration. Total for Clinton's two terms: 1.
What lame, pathetic cowards they all are. They have nothing positive to recommend them.
