Second, you want someone to commiserate with or invite to your pity party? A quick search comes up with plenty of people who've been wrongly convicted, only they didn't have the luxury of a generous salary, government pension, and improved "chalet" as a second home.
Most don't even have a first home...because, often for years, they were housed in prison cells smaller than your bathroom, Ted.
Many can't even qualify for compensation absent special acts of the various legislatures in States where they were unjustly imprisoned.
If I were you, Ted, I'd thank my lucky stars that the only people who were bigger lying sacks of shit than yourself were...the people who prosecuted you. Getting off on a technicality is nothing to be proud of.
First Beck and Bolton, now Beck and Bachmann? Someone needs to tell the Fox executives there's no long term gain in ripping a hole in the Space-Time Continuum. I mean, sure, Murdoch presumably couldn't care less since he's what, almost 90, but doesn't he have kids or grandkids...or at least a younger mistress/trophy wife?
Sometimes the simplest explanation makes the most sense: you had a somewhat dull dry-drunk and a power mad egomaniac, and, hmmm...ex smoker forced to drop the habit after suffering a heart attack (as a not quite reformed smoker myself, I can attest to feeling somewhat deprived at times.)
I wouldn't doubt for a second that if you add in the sort of ugly, swaggering hubris on constant display (e.g., their sick insistence on using 9/11 as a badge of honor as opposed to a mark of deep, deep shame), hell...I'd be mildly surprised if Dick, Dubya, Rummy, or any number of these fucks hadn't at one point or another ordered someone shot just so they could watch 'em die.
