So, yesterday a long-running federal investigation culminated in the arrest of organized crime figures from shadowy Chinatown tongs and the indictment of a Democrat California state senator who was one of the prime movers behind gun control legislation in that state on charges of smuggling machine guns and rocket launchers(!) into the country from sources in Russia and Muslim terrorists in the Philippines. Dramatic stuff, with undercover informants and politicians doing perp walks and a 137 page indictment that reads like a screenplay for the sequel to Year of the Dragon.
So what was the #2 story on the Missing Airplane Show on NBC this morning? Hey, did you hear that a fatty-fat-fat Republican maybe did and maybe didn't close a bridge lane a couple months ago?
