In Which I Make the "Raise the Roof" Gesture


The big news around the office this week was this report from the Center for Ethics and Responsibility in Washington; it ranks the “most corrupt” members of Congress. There are few surprises for Alaskans:

Members of the Senate:
Sen. Pete V. Domenici (R-NM)
Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY)
Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK)
Sen. Ted Stevens (R-AK)

Members of House:
Rep. Ken Calvert (R-CA)
Rep. John T. Doolittle (R-CA)
Rep. Tom Feeney (R-FL)
Rep. Doc Hastings (R-WA)
Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA)
Rep. William J. Jefferson (D-LA)
Rep. Jerry Lewis (R-CA)
Rep. Gary G. Miller (R-CA)
Rep. Alan B. Mollohan (D-WV)
Rep. Timothy F. Murphy (R-PA)
Rep. John P. Murtha (D-PA)
Rep. Steve Pearce (R-NM)
Rep. Rick Renzi (R-AZ)
Rep. Harold Rogers (R-KY)
Rep. David Scott (D-GA)
Rep. Don Young (R-AK)
Rep. Jerry Weller (R-IL)
Rep. Heather A. Wilson (R-NM)

Our entire delegation made the list. I believe this what’s known as a “clean sweep.” Any time you guys feel like demoting us to a territory again, just go ahead. We really aren’t capable of governing ourselves any more.

And this is just glorious news. What’s disgusting, though, is that in Alaska Ted Stevens could probably win re-election from a prison cell.
