When your house gets raided by the FBI, you should totally keep blocking ethics legislation!

– Liz Mair

Little more needs to be said than this:

There's never exactly a convenient time to have one's house raided by federal agents. But for Sen. Ted Stevens (R-Alaska) the impolitic timing Tuesday was exquisite: One day after the feds rummaged through his property on a corruption probe, he threatened to try to kill an ethics reform package.

Oh, yeah, guess what? Trent Lott is planning on voting against cloture on this bill-- and the bill itself.

If Lott is opposing this, my guess is, it's a pretty good bill.
