“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

The count down to Amanda Knox posing in Maxim starts in 3...2...1

A kangaroo court in Italy found Amanda Knox guilty, then not-guilty, then guilty once again of the murder of her roommate Meridith Kercher. If I were Amanda's adviser, I'd tell her to abandon any thoughts of ever returning to Italy or traveling to any country with which Italy has an extradition agreement. The US won't send her back because of our double-jeopardy law. The US cannot, by law, extradite a US citizen to another country if that citizen wouldn't serve time for the same thing here. Amanda Knox was found not-guilty and she cannot be retried here for that crime, so she cannot be extradited to Italy.

Still, it would be a shame to see Amanda go to jail for like 25 years. She's just too cute for jail. I mean isn't that the standard by which we decline to jail our prettiest, but misbehaving female teachers? And every guy in the US secretly knows that Amanda will run out of money at some point and start doing photo spreads in FHM and Maxim. She can't pose for pics from jail in Italy.
