Please leave the shears at home

The Birmingham News hit the road recently to follow former Gov. Don Siegelman across central Alabama on his "listening post" tour, which is like an ongoing political campaign but allegedly different. Siegelman, who roamed the state Tuesday in a state-owned SUV, said he may hold off on joining the 2006 gubernatorial race, if at all, until next year.

That late entrance would give his Democratic primary opponent, Lt. Gov. Lucy Baxley, almost a year's head start on fund raising and could help her build the kind of lead that even the reddest garden shears couldn't touch.

"'I have a lot of respect for Roy Moore,' Siegelman said. 'We all support the Ten Commandments...'"

"A lot of respect"? Between this and the shears theatrics, I finished with him. At this point, Moore's about the only person I wouldn't vote for over Siegelman. I have much more respect for Riley.

What Susan said. Siegelman is an embarrassment.
