    The fact is that the conviction was overturned. That you can't deal with it is another issue.

    One has absolutely nothing to do with the other. It is inane to even bring it up as it has nothing to do with this case.

    I do not deny that two Republican judges acted in a hyper-partisan fashion to reward a fellow Republican for service to the party in overturning his conviction. I have no trouble accepting that.

    It had everything to do with your comment about juries but you seem to have missed the point.

    Yes, everyone is hyper-partisan but you. The politically based conviction was overturned and you should try to get over it.

    It has nothing to do with the DeLay jury. The Simpson trial was lost the day that LA Prosecuter Gil Garcetti agreed on his own authority to move the trial from Santa Monica where it should have been held to downtown LA. that permitted the injection of all the racial crap that led to the Simpson acquital. There was no such fiasco in the DeLay trial.

    There is nothing to get over. Perhaps you do not understand the political nature of the very crimes DeLay was charged with in the first place?

    Correct.

    But there was other types of fiasco. As the appeals judges pointed out.

    The point that went right over your head is that juries make mistakes. They are not infallible.

    He was an effective Republican politician. That was all the proof some need. I wonder why the left wing press didn't make as big a story over this compared to his indictment and improper conviction

    same thing with Ted Stevens
