From Xan at Corrente:

There's a moment in every movie: Dorothy throws the bucket of water on the Wicked Witch. Michael Moore reads from "1984." Darth Vader's ship goes spinning away as the Death Star explodes in the skies over Endor. You know, the moment when the bad guy gets his comeuppance?

Via WaPo towards whom I am feeling very kindly at the moment):

In May 2001, Enron's top lobbyists in Washington advised the company chairman that then-House Majority Whip Tom DeLay (R-Tex.) was pressing for a $100,000 contribution to his political action committee, in addition to the $250,000 the company had already pledged to the Republican Party that year.

[. . .]

Asshole DeLay deserves to be occupying a cell next to Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld.
