Trial by Twitter

The unthinkable and unimaginable happened in the Nagin case. The defendant testified in his corruption trial. It did not go well for the former Mayor. He blamed everyone but himself for his misfortunes. It’s not my fault, man was his constant refrain. Juries hate this and will probably hate him for doing it.

I was one of many political junkies who followed the trial on the Tweeter Tube. In lieu of the detailed analysis that I’m too lazy to do, check out #nagintrial and my feedfor snappy commentary. Here’s a totally self-serving self-absorbed selection of my tweets. (There are several inside-NOLA references, but I’m too lazy to explain those either.) Fitting because no one is more self-absorbed than C Ray.
