Guess Who May Be Going to Jail - Senator Pork

Senator Ted "Bridge to nowhere" Stevens. You know, the internet is pipes guy? Senator Stevens has been indicted on 7 counts of making false statements (also known as lying). Let's hope Alaska Rep. Don Young soon follows. With our current Justice Department I'll have to be somewhat cautious that anything actually happens to these guys. Even if convicted, it's likely they will end up being pardoned by President Bush.

You can read much more about "Uncle Ted" and the Alaska welfare state here.

Latest McCain Flip-flop

"Sen. Obama will raise your taxes," McCain said. "I won't."

But that was then (July 7 town-hall meeting in Denver), and this is now.

"I don't want tax increases. But that doesn't mean that anything is off the table."

At least it's not pandering.

Also, more on McCain's support of the troops.
