I'm interrupting your regularly scheduled Christmas for some political gloating. This is just too beautiful not to share.

A 27-year-old student at the University of Utah "tainted" a Bureau of Land Management auction of oil and gas leases on public land by pushing bids up above the usual rock-bottom prices. Talking Points Memo points out that
  1. this means the leases are worth a lot more to the bidders than they had been paying, and
  2. the whole thing never would have been possible if the Bush Administration hadn't waived the usual process for prequalifying bidders in an attempt to put as many underpriced leases through as possible before January 20. Buuuuuuurn!

    Oh yeah, Merry Christmas to everybody who is celebrating it.
