Winning, Duh: Scott Ritter Blames Bush For Sex Charges

He got stung by one of those To Catch a Pedophile type stings (but it wasn't To Catch a Pedophile, or damnit, someone's hiding the video).

He engaged in a graphic sex chat with a person claiming to be a 15 year old girl, and then polished his pickle on webcam for good measure.

He says he of course thought his sex partner was 56 years old and just lying about being a 15 year old, and also, he was set up due to his opposition to the War in Iraq.

Attorney Gary Kohlman said Ritter thought the woman was acting through a fantasy when he was arrested by Barrett police in 2009.

In opening arguments, Attorney Gary Coleman called Ritter a dedicated veteran and suggested he could be a victim of a conspiracy theory because he's been so outspoken about the war.

This is another underage-sex charge -- in 2001 he was charged with child endangerment for trying to meet with a 16-year-old girl. (I think at a Burger King -- class all the way.) That was also and undercover sting operative, and you gotta think if he's blundered into two fake-kids he must be attempting to pick up on kids all the time. (Actually, Wikipedia says this is his third charge for soliciting a minor.)

His attorney said today that Ritter was depressed during that time in 2001 because threats had been made against him because he was so outspoken about the Iraq War. The attorney said the depression led him to the incident in New York.

I was depressed most of last year and my doctor prescribed statutory rape, so I know the feeling.

This is sort of alarming:

Ritter's daughters are in the courtroom for the jury trial.

His daughters? Who I assume are tweens or teens, or as Scott Ritter calls them, "fair game"? Yeah, they won't have any problems.

There was an old meme on the internet that pedophiles all tend to smile alike. With a small smile, as if keeping a secret, but also sort of laughing on the inside that you don't know it. A "pedosmile," the meme went.

Maybe it's for real.
