    As you see this story develop, see how long it takes anybody to mention that he's a prominent Dem who's hosting a big fundraiser for HRC next month in one of the 2008 presidential debate towns, Oxford, Miss.

    OXFORD, Miss. (AP) – A federal grand jury has indicted prominent attorney Richard “Dickie” Scruggs and several other attorneys on criminal charges of trying to influence a judge in a civil case.

    Will Bernie Kerik be attending said fundraiser?

    Because if so, I'm there.

    Trying to influence a judge in a civil case isn't a crime -- it's just good business.

    My estimation...as long as it takes to surface that Dickie donated thousands to the campaigns of John McCain and Joe Biden.

    The 2007 political equivalent, I reckon, of "yer momma wears army boots."

    This story has even less traction than this one.

    And neither is likely to be taken up nationally.

    Influencing a judge? Child's play![/karlrove]

    Oh, I think the Scruggs story will gain traction. But that's just me.

    As usual, you march way ahead of me, comrade.
     
  11. Scruggs is the guy who brought -- and won -- the tobacco lawsuit depicted in The Insider.
    He's a big deal.
    That said, he's nowhere near as big a crook as the al-Thanis, believe me.
