If you ever needed proof age does matter when it comes to politicians “here’s your sign”. According to the  Archorage Daily News, Ted Stevens insist he isn’t a felon (even though he was convicted of 7) and he goes a step further and says hasn’t been convicted yet. Maybe some will argue he didn’t get the memo but for goodness sake he sat through a trial, Hello! Is it just me or isn’t there a growing number of GOPamnestic’s

“I’ve not been convicted yet,” Stevens said Thursday in a meeting with the editorial board of the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner. “There’s not a black mark by my name yet, until the appeal is over and I am finally convicted, if that happens. If that happens, of course I’ll do what’s right for Alaska and for the Senate. … I don’t anticipate it happening, and until it happens I do not have a black mark.”

But the madness (I use that term loosely) doesn’t stop there, Stevens repeated his claim during a televised debate.

Stevens reiterated that position during a televised debate late Thursday night, declaring early in the give-and-take with Anchorage Mayor Mark Begich, “I have not been convicted of anything.”

Clearly there is a village somewhere missing a villager.
