ted's farewell begins

So unsurprisingly Republican Senator Ted Stevens, advocate of Bridges to Nowhere and other pork projects for Alaska, has been indicted for failing to report on all the free work an Alaska oil company (Veco) was doing on his luxury home near Anchorage. He denies doing anything wrong of course. But he's lucky not to be indicted for taking bribes, since while Veco was doing the work, he was handing out contracts.

Hope this marks the beginning of the end for Stevens. First, he could lose in the GOP primary coming up. Then, he could still lose to the Democratic candidate in November. Either way, getting this aging corrupt pocket-lining obstructionist gas-bag out of the Senate will be a clear example of addition by subtraction. Would that it had happened 20 years earlier.
