THE DEFENSE NEVER RESTS
Defending Mother Theresa
December 31st, 2008
Nonetheless we hiss and hurl heated opinion at the mere arrest of Governor Blagojevich. Like the Salem witch trials, one was a witch at the accusation and not at the conclusion of any trial. The goveernor is judged guilty without indictment or rather the talk of an indictment as Governor Blagojevich has not been formally indicted by United States Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald even at this late date.
To come to the aid of the weak and feeble or the virtuous and popular takes no true showing of character. To stand up for those perceived as evil or the unpopular - this takes courage and character. Barack Obama could have and should have merely stated that the allegations are disappointing and that he would offer more after a formal proceeding had taken place.
