Beam Me Up… to the Oval Office!


Supporters of everyone's favorite jailbird ex-congressman, Jim Trafficant, have formed a presidential exploratory committee. Mark Twain once said that Congress was the only native criminal class in the United States, so it makes sense, in a way, to have a president who's actually in jail. (Though, one supposes, his first act in office might involve an invocation of the pardon power.) My favorite part of the article: "The former lawmaker couldn't immediately be reached for comment." Yeah, I imagine not.
