Feathered Bastard

Tom Horne Testifies, Channels Bill Clinton

Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne looked so peaceful during his testimony Wednesday afternoon that if someone told me he'd done a bong hit during lunch, I'd have to consider the possibility.

It was a marked change from the rest of the hearing into his, um, alleged campaign finance shenanigans, which began on Monday and concluded earlier than expected at five o'clock Wednesday, making every reporter in the room happier than Kiwi siren Lorde at this year's Grammy Awards.

When not under oath in Administrative Law Judge Tammy Eigenheer's courtroom, Horne's demeanor was that of a man recovering from the removal of a yard of innards.
