You can't make this stuff up: Sen. Stevens (he of the freshly raided home) is threatening to place a hold on the ethics overhaul bill just passed by the House. From The Politico: "The senator told a closed session of fellow Republicans today, including Vice President Dick Cheney, that he was upset that the measure would interfere with his travel to and from Alaska – and vowed to block it."

Though he's not yet elaborated on his specific objection to the bill, the hot, buttered irony of a man involved in a corruption investigation taking a hardline stance against an ethics reform bill is neatly balanced on the line between comedy and tragedy.
