It's rule #1 in the Republican playbook that if you repeat something often enough -- irrespective of its veracity -- it becomes common wisdom. Somehow, I don't think that rule is going to work for Senator Tubes. TPMMuckraker:

On Saturday, Stevens visited the small town of Ketchikan, for their annual blueberry festival and gave an interesting quote to the Ketchikan Daily News (sub. req.):

"This is an indictment for failure to disclose gifts that are controversial in terms of whether they were or were not gifts. It's not bribery; it's not some corruption; it's not some extreme felony."

Felony, schmelony. Interesting that his levels of severity have bribery and corruption as extreme, but his felony...that's nothing.
