Okay stay with me on this. Harriet Miers was on some lottery commission, right? And pretty soon she'll need a bunch of senators to vote for her so she can get on the Supreme Court, right? And some people who are against her nomination are Republicans, right? And yesterday, a Republican senator won $853,492 in the Powerball lottery, right? See where i'm going with this?

i demand an investigation. i'm not saying there's been any wrongdoing, i'm just saying that these facts raise questions.

Developing . . .

Me, I question the timing. I've always wanted to say that. Who knew that sounding like Pat Leahey can be so much fun?

I guess I'll dub this "powerballgate", but only because I enjoy saying "powerball" so much.

God Bless America.

The local Fox affiliate did a little story about it. Sen. Gregg said he had contacted his wife who told him not to spend it. They interviewed another woman who suggested he should donate it to hurricane relief; when told the senator's wife was in control of the bucks, she replied, "Oh, a female's in charge. That's OK."

Betcha the local Prada store is gonna get hit. Hard.

Let's just indict her now and forget the investigation. It's what the media would want.
