Manson prosecutor Bugliosi has a book out about Bush

Entitled "The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder", it will no doubt be a fawning, sycophantic, display of self importance by the prosecutor who tried Manson and who wrote "Helter Skelter". I say that because although Manson was guilty as sin of ordering the murders Bugliosi's conduct was completely inappropriate and in any other case he would have been reprimanded and the defendants would have been given a new trial. Proof for this: the fearless, courageous, prosecutor successfully argued that the jury should not physically see Manson while he testified because of an alleged "Hypnotic Power" that he would use to influence the jurors. So, the jury was taken out of the room while the questioning of Manson happened and were later given transcripts of what had occurred. The hero prosecutor turns out under scrutiny to be a weasel who used cowardly tactics in the prosecution of a high profile case. Then, of course, there's the question of all the witnesses he didn't call, or didn't press while on the witness stand. The Manson family knew some of Hollywood's elite, likely knew very embarrassing things about them relating to drug use and sexual proclivities, and yet as a District Prosecutor for Los Angeles County, Bugliosi served power by not bringing inconvenient facts into the case that may have lessened the reputation of some of these folks.
