    As with Gingrich, this felony will assure McDonnell will have a prominent political future in the GOP and as a Fox News analyst.

    Quite right - another mistake by McDonnell.

    He knew what was going on and that it was illegal. I'm hoping they give him the maximum.

    Uhh... Gingrich is on CNN, not Fox. Just a tip for you: When making snarky partisan remarks at least get the analogous information right otherwise your statement becomes an embarrassment like yours just did.

    I'm so glad you set the facts straight. It's not like Gingrich was ever an analyst on Fox or anything.

    It's not like Gingrich has his own SHOW on CNN or anything... live in the here and now.

    I voted for him and I thought he did a pretty good job as governor. Nonetheless, guilty is guilty and justice has been done. Unless they pull a rabbit out of a hat on appeal they will both go away for a long time. This makes their pre-trial refusal of a generous plea bargain look like one of the all time bonehead moves.

    I agree.. you'd actually have to have a point first which you don't.

    Yep, McDonnell's felony conviction will probably not bar him from a bright political future in the felony-haunted GOP, which has the likes of Gingrich as its leading spokesmen (and presidential contenders). It seems to be a habit among conservative republicans to gravitate toward felons.

    Yep. Crooked politicians have always infected both parties. Which is not good for national security, if you know what I mean.
