Richard Pombo goes to Hollywood (sort of)

Last weekend I watched the movie Evan Almighty (fun movie for the family, IMO) and one of the characters deeply reminded me of someone.

John Goodman plays the role of "Congressman Long" who is the chair of the House Resources committee. Long attempts to convince the main character, Evan, (Steve Carel) to join him in pushing through the "land act" which would open public lands for private development (at great personal profit for Long, of course). I won't post any spoilers but let's just say that the depths of Long's corruption plays a large role in the outcome of the movie.

Remind you of anyone?
