Justice delayed...

Yesterday in court, former Gov. George Ryan made his best puppy-dog eyes for the judge of his corruption trial and won a six-month delay in the start of the trial. The reason he needed the delay, Ryan argued, is that his lawyer Dan Webb will be too busy in March with a big tobacco trial to defend Ryan. By granting this delay, the judge is essentially acknowledged that the wheels of justice revolve around Dan Webb's schedule. I have to believe that this delay is bad news for Republicans, given that the corruption trial is now set to overlap the primary campaign season, providing a reminder to voters as to why they voted Democrat in 2002.
