88. Nothing Says "Scandal" Like "ENRON", Be Sure ENRON is at Jan 20
I realize that Votergate and the Invasion of Iraq are fresher topics, but Enron STILL hasnt been investigated and it is the Mother of all Bush Conspiracies. A case can be made that every god damn thing they have done has been to help Enron make money and then to cover up what they did for Enron.

Anyway, the criminals involved in Enron still have not been brought to justice and W. still hasnt explained what he was thinking when he rolled back those price caps allowing those energy traders to f**k the grandmas of California as they so quaintly put in on the tapes which CBS aired last summer (and which probably contributed to the wrath of Karl Rove). Nor have we seen the Cheney energy documents.

Do not allow the smoke of all the different fires this administration has started around the world make us forget that the biggest, nastiest most treacherous (for W.) is the one in his own back yard.

E-N-R-O-N. If White Water deserved an Independent Counsel, Enron deserves a Special Prosecutor.
