Speaking of painful stuff, Open Secrets has this handy chart showing political contributions by Enron execs. Youch. Or... it would be, "youch," IF THE FREAKIN' NEWS WOULD PUBLICIZED THIS SHIT BETTER!!! ARRRG! *phwew* Where was I? Oh yes. I've seen a blurb or two saying something along the lines of, "Dems say that Repubs are in bed with Enron execs; Repubs say that Ken Lay, et al have contributed to both parties; CNN has found that they contribute more to Repubs." Okay. That's factual and all, but holy jeebus, this should be a story in and of itself; not just some quick blurb! Where's the outrage, dammit? Where's the outcry? Why did it take so long to indict Ken Lay?
On a lighter note, I have definitive proof that Edwards is not gay. Yes, yes, I know he has/had kids, and I know he's married, but with [only slightly photoshopped] images like the one on the right, there's a seed of doubt- hell, even Michael Jackson got married and had kids! So. I am happy to put this rumor to rest once and for all with this report from CNN. The proof? Edwards takes his wife to frickin' Wendy's for their anniversary every year! Yes, the fast food chain. Only a straight man could come up with an idea as brilliant as that. Shit, I think I'll try that out sometime; it's bound to work great! I'll bet he gets his wife power tools for her birthday and then acts all surprised when she doesn't use them.
