A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

My congressman, the crook: Rep. Randy "Duke" Cunningham pleaded guilty today in federal court to tax evasion, wire and mail fraud and conspiring to accept bribes.

As evidence of the sometimes unevenness of this business, the San Diego Union-Tribune first broke the story about Cunningham's windfall house sale which in turn prompted the federal investigation.

Cunningham will rightly be spending some time in prison -- the work camp in Lompoc is quite nice and he wouldn't be the first politician to spend time there for corruption.

I know some Democrats believe that Cunningham's conviction holds promise for them in the 2006 election. Don't bet on it. It's not as if Cunningham will be running for office, and despite what House minority leader Nancy Pelosi likes to claim, the GOP is no more or less corrupt than the Democrats.
