Amartheid

From Netscape News:

"In an interview with ABC news, [Martha Stewart] . . . compared her plight to that of anti-apartheid activist Nelson Mandela."

Yes, that's right, Martha. You're going to spend years in prison following prosecution because of your radical views (you may think I'm being sarcastic, but anyone who has ever seen what the woman does with popcorn will agree that she is pretty out there). Then, when you get out of prison, you will be awarded the Nobel Prize (for Encouraging Upper-Middle-Class Americans to Waste Money On Stupid Materialistic Shit That Contributes to the Absurd Opulence of the United States).

On a side note, the article also notes that the judge presiding over the case received 1500 letters expressing support for Stewart, from all across the country. In a country of 280 million people, is that really so impressive?
