California GOP chooses lobbyist to replace Cunningham

Former Republican Congressman Brian Bilbray won yesterday's election to fill the vacated House seat left empty by disgraced ethical nightmare and prominent Hookergate figure Randy "Duke" Cunningham, beating his Dem challenger by what Chris Bowers thinks to be about 5%.

Bilbray isn't just a former Congressman, though. He's spent the interim between his two stints in DC as a lobbyist with ethical issues, making him the perfect choice to replace Duke friggin' Cunningham.

I gotta go with Pusboy on this one: Congratulations, Republicans. You're Idiots.
