Valerie Plame.

The sliming of Richard Clarke.

The sliming of O'Neill.

The sliming of Chambliss.

Gerrymandering.

Diverting 700K from Afghanistan to planning the invasion of Iraq.

Secret Energy Meeting.

Flying Saudis on 9/12.

Celebrating King Day with an Amicus Curiae brief in favor of eliminating affirmative action.

Celebrating the next King Day with the appointment of a segregationist judge whose ascension had been blocked by the Senate.

Have I added enough for you?
