Down the Tubes

Looks like Ted "Bridge-to-Nowhere" or "The-Internet-is-a-series-of-tubes" Stevens won't be in the Senate much longer.

The NY Times reports that investigations have led to an indictment and corruption charges for the senior senator from Alaska. Even if he survives the legal proceedings, I have a feeling there will be calls to step down to prevent further tarnishing of an already abysmal scene for Congressional Republicans over the past couple of years.

This certainly shouldn't help the impression of Congress on the whole for Americans who apparently approve of the legislature by less than 10%.
