Vote the Bums In

I guess if you're a Democrat, it doesn't matter how much bribe money is found in your freezer.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- U.S. Rep. William Jefferson easily defeated his fellow Democratic opponent in Saturday's runoff, despite an ongoing federal bribery investigation. With 38 percent of the precincts reporting, Jefferson, Louisiana's first black congressman since Reconstruction, led with 60 percent of the vote over state Rep. Karen Carter.

What's a "bumb"? Something that combines the features of a bomb and a bum?

Oops, I guess the word has been politically incorrect for so long that I forgot how to spell it.

Great, now I have TWO editors -- just like at work.
