Brave Alaskans Liveblog Ted Stevens’ Trial So We Don’t Have To!

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

Justice, Alaska styleUncle Ted Stevens, the elderly fraud who “gets hysterical when he has to spend his own money,” will soon be going to trial for various lies related to the renovation of his Alaskan Sex Cabin in the wilds of Girdwood. The good people of the Alaska Wilderness Political Fund will be liveblogging the whole agonizing ordeal, from jury selection to the part where Ted Stevens snaps on the witness stand and declares “This whole court’s out of order!” and gets wheeled off for shock treatments while his Inuit pal throws a marble wash station out the window. Catch it all here. [A Bridge to Justice]

    Good thing this isn’t hurting his chances of re-election.

  • Texan Bulldoggette

    For crying out loud, don’t mention sex & Stevens in the same sentence!

  • WhatTheHeck

    When you live on the front lines of the not-so-cold-war, one deserves a cosy bunker.
    In fact this trial is a sham. We should be paying Stevens’ lobbyists for the free work they did on his bunker.

  • Miller

    Is he wearing a Hulk tie or has he gone for the full Hulk costume? You know, to show he’s serious.


  • SayItWithWookies

    How much longer must America be held hostage to this travesty? I’m not talking about the Stevens trial — I’m talking about the senseless depiction of penguins and polar bears as inhabiting the same environment? Please make a contribution today to the American Society for the Proper Depiction of Penguins as Antarctic Denizens and help stop the madness. Thank you.

    Please let him say “You can’t handle the truth”… please let him say “You can’t handle the truth”…

    Alaska is the American Welfare state, and Ted Stevens is their sugar daddy. You didn’t think the rugged individualist welfare queens in that state would toss him aside just because he steals for himself, too, did you?

  • obfuscator


    If he shows up wearing those big plastic Hulk hands, running around the courtroom yelling “Stevens MAD!! Now… Stevens SMASH!!!”, then I will personally donate $4.36 to his reelection bid.

  • SayItWithWookies

    [re=105759]SayItWithWookies[/re]: Obviously no question mark after environment. And no, the cymbals don’t bother me. Our symphony orchestra had a penguin who was a pretty good violist, so the cymbals aren’t much of a stretch. But he’d never been to the north pole.

  • Serolf Divad


    Penguins and Polar bears both inhabited Alaska just after the fall of man and before the great flood… you know… back when the descendants of Cain were running around hunting Stegosaurus for their tasty, tender meat?

  • azw88

    [re=105759]SayItWithWookies[/re]: That picture doesn’t depict reality, it depicts the very near future, what
    With the northern icesheet melting, polar bears will be migrating to the south pole, where irate pengiuns will seek to aggrevate the interlopers in order to drive them back to ‘their own neighborhoods’.

  • columnv

    [re=105760]AnnieGetYourFun[/re]: I want him to say, “I am the law!!!!!11!!!!”

  • Strictly for the Tardcore

    Ted Stevens is Andy Dufresne in The Anchorage Redemption.

    Coming to a federal prison in 2009.

  • Terry


    I have a theory that it’s the polar bear who is in the wrong place. The poor bear was transported to the Antarctic, where he’s despondent that not only is he far from home and his preferred food sources, but these pain in the arse penguins won’t let him get a moment’s rest.

  • magic titty

    Here’s hoping for some “King Kong ain’t got NOTHIN ON ME!!!”

  • AngryBlakGuy

    …I wonder what penguin taste like? Anyways back on subject; pay attention folks you are about to get a preview of what WALNUTS! is going to look like during the debates.

  • Lascauxcaveman

    Heh. “Alaskan Sex Cabin.” Sara sure knows how to spice up a story about a completely otherwise banal corruption scandal.

    SKS, give ma a call if/when you need to bring a photographer up there to do an on-site investigative report on the cabin in question. And invite Liz, too, for the video.

  • Uncle Al

    Is there any way we can hope Sarah (“Don’t ask ME any questions, I’m just a girl!”) Palin will get dragged into the trial somehow?
    Santa, that’s what I want for Xmas!

  • AngryBlakGuy

    [re=105781]magic titty[/re]: …hehehe, or better yet “Man up nigga! Man up!”

  • Lascauxcaveman

    [re=105781]Lascauxcaveman[/re]: Or you could give “me” a call; ma wouldn’t be interested. Too old for that kind of adventure.

    I’m more videogenic, anyway.

  • Borat

    Ah, now the whole log cabin penny thing makes sense to me.

  • dano

    [re=105782]AngryBlakGuy[/re]: Indeed. Walnuts is going to make Nixon look glamorous. He’ll have to stand up there with a taller, younger, and more articulate opponent and it will not go well for him. ( I forgot to mention clean ).

  • pattycake

    [re=105782]AngryBlakGuy[/re]: Penguin tastes like greasy fish.

  • Harold_Ignoramis

    He can see Alaska State Penitentary from his house.

  • Dientes

    [re=105766]Serolf Divad[/re]: You mean McCain, right?

  • Terry


    …and soon he’ll be able to see his house from the penitentary.

  • shortsshortsshorts

    I’m feeling an Enkidu moment coming on. After spending so much time in the great white north there is surely no way Ted can handle civil society. Therefore this trial is a librul bias.

  • obfuscator

    [re=105786]AngryBlakGuy[/re]: If he gets acquitted, he’ll jump up and down with his legal team screaming “Say ‘WORD’, son! WHAT?!” over and over.

  • Itsjustme

    Uh Ohhh, Rolling Stone Magazine is going to be on the wrong side of Walnuts and Bible Spice.

  • grendel

    [re=105793]dano[/re]: You say articulate like it’s an advantage. It’s not.

  • Itsjustme

    [re=105782]AngryBlakGuy[/re]: Are you old enough to remember those films of Eskimos eating blubber? I can’t shake that vision every time Bible Spice is mentioned.

  • Cogito Ergo Bibo

    I think that, in this time of economic crisis, the country may have to let some of the States go. Alaska was one of the last in. I think the time has come to part company.

  • AngryBlakGuy

    [re=105827]Itsjustme[/re]: …yeah, I think I remember those specials on PBS. Those were the days when they would show the women from the Amazon Rain Forrest and not blur out their breast! The good ‘ol days my friend.
