I believe that Tom Delay's smiling mugshot at that police station, which he later claimed he did so that people could see God through his smile, is one for the history textbooks, with the requisite "lots of 'splainin' to do" for generations yet unborn.

And McCain was right there in the Senate chambers the whole time Delay was leading the House, voting like clockwork with the whole Republican block. The record is there to see.

If you're ever in the mood, you should read Matt Taibbi's "Worst Congress Ever", an eight page chronicle of the worst shenanigans of the 109th Congress (2004 to 2006). It is still posted on Rolling Stone's website, and it's archive date is October 19, 2006, or right around that time.

It's very well-written, with a sardonic tone, endearing (I'm sure) to Lance's readers.
