Former Gov. Don Siegelman said Wednesday that he thinks it is growing more likely he will be indicted by a federal grand jury in Montgomery, a move he said would be purely an effort to scuttle his efforts to reclaim the state's top office.
In his interview with the Tuscaloosa News, Siegelman said he would not let the investigation derail his campaign and punctuated his remarks with a message to the prosecutors involved: "They can kiss my a-, and you can quote me on that, too."
He also said polling data indicate that voters' perceptions of Louisiana Gov. Kathleen Blanco's response to Hurricane Katrina could hurt his opponent in the Democratic primary, Lt. Gov. Lucy Baxley.
Siegelman said Blanco's performance created doubts with some voters about having a woman in charge of the National Guard.
Roy Moore autographs Bibles
Meanwhile, Roy Moore is suffering from such a powerful religious delusion that he has apparently mistaken himself for "The Lord God Almighty" and was recently photographed autographing bibles along the Road to Damascus...I mean Montgomery.
Wonder what Jesus thinks about them apples?

Ahhh there is nothing quite as entertaining as Alabama politics at their finest.
It appears Don Siegelman has adopted my potty-mouth and he is also extoling the virtues of having Roy Moore as an opponent.
I swear Siegelman and Moore have been paying close attention to everything I say and do.
I have stated all along that the best possible scenario would be for me to square off against Siegelman and Moore in the election because we all three have criminal records and next to those two I will come off looking like the sane one hands down.
The next 13 months will be an absolute riot!
