There is, as always, an embarrassment of riches from which to choose today. Apparently, Ken Lay's conviction has been "vacated" by a judge. His death before his appeal process was complete makes him "not guilty". This means that the Government can't seize his ill gotten loot! How damn convenient.

Also, NPR reported in a news broadcast this morning, that Curt Weldon (R-Pa.) blamed the FBI for conducting politically motivated searches in their quest for evidence that he may have helped his daughter land government contracts.

"What I find ironic, if there is an investigation, is that no one would tell me until three weeks before the election," Weldon said. "This incident was 2 1/2 years ago."


I find this soooo easy to believe. The Republicans, known for their devotion to Fair Play and Ethics (Florida 2000, Lay, Abramoff,Foley, Hastert....), have obviously allowed their own Attorney General to trash yet another Republican for "Political Reasons"

I mean, it MUST be that....the only OTHER reason that the FBI would act now was that the whole thing stinks in such a putrid fashion that they had no choice.

But it couldn't be that....could it?
