Free Martha Stewart!

The Rittenhouse Review has a pretty thorough analysis of the accusations against KaMe-apART's domesticity diva Martha Stewart involving insider trading at soon-to-be-dead pharmaceutical company ImClone. It convinced me of two things: 1) Martha Stewart did nothing wrong, having given a sell order when it reached a certain lower limit weeks before the sale took place; 2) the Media Whores are holding true to form, running with this story solely on the basis of Stewart's celebrity as opposed to the merits of the case or the possible wrongdoing by Samuel Waksal.

In fact, the sweaty punditry and late-night jokes regarding this case are just recycled from when Hillary made $100K in the volatile commodities market. Who says conservative crackpots don't like recycling?
