Cool widget edition.

Those folks at Sunlight Foundation have come up with a really cool widget that can add hours of pleasure to our online time. Now when we want to point out the foibles of a politician or even just give you access to more information about someone in office, all we need to do is tag their name to Sunlight Foundation's information using the Popup-Politician widget. All you need to do is pass your cursor over the sunlight symbol after their name and you'll see a pop-up to more information about the person.

Here's an example using one of my favorite corruption-watch politicians: Rep. Charles Jeremy (Jerry) Lewis.

Or here's what you see if we link Senator Joseph Lieberman to his record.

What do you think?
