New Bestest Candidate Nominee

I believe this is the third bestest candidate nominee this month. Today we have the longest serving Republican Senator and a man who believes the Internet is "a series of tubes." Ted fucking Stevens. He's running for another Senate term but is going to be hampered by those seven indictments he picked up today. Usually, candidates try to pick up endorsements.

Sen. Ted Stevens, the longest-serving Republican senator and a figure in Alaska politics since before statehood, was indicted Tuesday on seven counts of failing to disclose thousands of dollars in services he received from a company that helped renovate his home.

From May 1999 to August 2007, prosecutors said, the 84-year-old senator concealed "his continuing receipt of hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of things of value from a private corporation."

The indictment unsealed Tuesday says the items included: home improvements to his vacation home in Alaska, including a new first floor, garage, wraparound deck, plumbing, electrical wiring; as well as a Viking gas grill, furniture and tools.

What? A guy can't get a new first floor, garage and wraparound deck from a buddy? Why so tight assed America?
