In my early journalism days as a reporter I interviewed Sen. Ted Stevens about a proposal to that he was pushing that would open a spaceport in Alaska. He wasn't happy about the resulting article -- or me.
Today, Stevens was found guilty on seven corruption counts.
Now, there's probably no connection between the two incidents -- but if you're a public official, you might want to watch your mouth when it comes to me.
So, the Democrats are one step closer to reaching the filibuster-proof 60 seat threshold. That's OK, because the GOP brand will be better without Stevens in the Senate.
