I just had the most frightening thought of my entire life.
What if Sen. Ted Stevens, R-Alaska, is found guilty? His case is about to go to the jury.
Stevens is up for re-election and obviously it’s too late to nominate someone else. His name will stay on the November ballot.
He could be re-elected – as he has been for 40 years – and then have to step down. Gov. Sarah Palin could then nominate herself to fill the vacant seat when she and McCain lose the presidential election.
Oh noooo. Say it ain’t so!
