George Allen nominated (by me) for Jackass of the Year

Virginia senator George Allen (written about on this blog before) has broken the rule of holes: When you're in a hole, stop digging. Allen keeps digging. More at the Jump.

It seems that those stock options he neglected to tell the Senate about because they were "worthless" weren't so worthless. Well, worthless maybe to him. But to the Average Joe, $1.1 million isn't something to sneeze at. Imagine how much better your life could be if only you had $1.1 million extra laying around. Most of us would have exactly $1.1 million.

But this guy, a purported Presidential candidate, cannot be bothered with a paltry sum of the likes of $1.1 million. Shame on us for thinking that so little means so much.
