    Like Santorum in that regard, but twice as many kids. They need a big college fund, dontcha know? Pretty serious reversal of fortune for his passel of offspring; mama too with daddy in jail. Or can he get off without any jail time?

    Like Harry Reid, Renzi was doing favors for mining companies. In Renzi's case, it had to do with land swaps for mining on public lands. Reid goes about it a little differently, since he puts retail favors - exemptions from NEPA's required reviews for endangered species, water quality, archeological sites - for specific mine properties as a routine matter of course. Not illegal, cuz he gets the Congress to pass it; Presidents typically don't even know that stuff is there, buried in the fine print.

    Mark Twain: It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so.
