Lynne Stewart: The New O.J.

In an article titled "O.J. Trials for Terrorists," Ann Coulter, with her usual verve, humor and tenacity takes a look at Clinton-appointed Judge John Koeltl's decision to give Lynne Stewart 28 months for aiding terrorists. Here is a bit of the article:

"Democrats run apparently sane candidates for office, like James Webb in Virginia and Bob Casey in Pennsylvania, who can puff up their chests and pretend they want to pursue terrorists -- while carping about any and all military action in the terrorists' general direction. Instead, let's turn terrorists over to courts full of Clinton and Carter judges! Democratic candidates get to look tough, and the terrorists go scot-free...After President Bush signed a law this week providing for military tribunals for terrorists being held at Guantanamo and prohibiting their torture, Democratic Sen. Russ Feingold of Wisconsin said, 'We will look back on this day as a stain on our nation's history.' (Note to Democrats: It's still too soon to use "stain" as a metaphor for a White House brouhaha.) Democrats stood outside the White House shouting "Torture is a crime!" and "Bush is the terrorist!" Yep, these are the people who claim they're going to keep us all safe, America. Everybody good with that?"
