    I read that a month ago, Judicial Watch is very right wing.. they threw in a couple of token Republicans to create an appearance of balance. If you look at what they do and what they advocate for their mission is quite clear.

    While they definitely have leanings, I think that they are trying to be fair. From wikipedia:
    "More recently, Judicial Watch has also sued the George W. Bush administration for access to minutes of Vice President Cheney's Energy Task Force[5] and has also sued the Secret Service to force the release of logs detailing corrupt lobbyist Jack Abramoff's visits to the White House."

    They may have a conservative background, and that is certainly important to remember. But it looks like they're trying to some of the secrets of this administration as well.

    Judicial Watch is basically right wing and made it's name by going after the Clintons. Earlier in Bush's term, they did make an effort to become more legitimate, but more recently they seem to be returning to their old partisanship. Their list is obviously nothing but a political hit list on powerful Democrats and not so powerful Republicans. Using the standards they seem to have used for Democrats, a reasonable objectively version should certainly have included people like Cheney and Ted Stevens.

    The would've made more sense if it listed "The last 10 people who aren't corrupt in Washington".

    boom... those minutes of which Cheney and the gang capitulated that global cheap crude reserves are running out... in our lifetime...

    when you come to grips with the fact that energy is running out, you understand why our leaders are acting like desperadoes in a town with no sherriff....
