Ted Stevens: "I've Not Been Convicted Yet"

I guess being found guilty of all seven counts does not qualify as a conviction. Those Alaskans must have a different definition of what it means to be 'convicted.' It leads Juan Cole to ask if there is something in the water in Alaska.

Or perhaps they are just radically different from us non-subsidized folks in the lower 48. How else can we explain this bizarre, shitty ad from Democrat Diane Benson, who is running for an Alaska house seat? What the hell?!
