Martha's travails

Hmm. It's interesting to see the reactions to Martha Stewart's conviction over at Eschaton, the left side of the left side of the left wing. As I understood it, Stewart was a big-contributer-in-good-standing of the Democratic party, yet her support among left-wingers seems considerably less (as a percentage of comments on the internet) among the left than the right. In fact, I don't think I've seen a single "Yea, prosecutor." or "take that, liberal b**ch" on right-wing blogs, but there are quite a few commenters with similar sentiments on this Eschaton thread.

In a way, this is encouraging. It suggests that people are going with their principles instead of with their team.
