The original "Maverick" crashes and burns just like when Goose bit the big one in "Top Gun"

U.S. Rep. Randy "Duke" Cunningham, the inspiration for Tom Cruise's character "Maverick" in "Top Gun," crashed and burned today, pleading guilty to accepting bribes and resigning from the House. It looks like he's lost the lovin' feelin'........ Now its gone.... Gone.... Gone.... Whoa, whoa, whoa.....

This really stinks. I always admired Duke for his life story. His office was also a customer of mine when I was assigned to Capitol Hill. He's one of very few Members I actually spent a decent amount of time with. He was always very nice and would always share an old war story.

Being a Top Gun nut I use to love to hear of his days flying Phantoms in 'Nam.

Oh well, guess even the good ones can take the wrong path.
