Republic. I like the sound of the word. It means people can live free, talk free, go or come, buy or sell, be drunk or sober, however they choose. Some words can give you a feeling that makes your heart warm. Republic is one of those words. - John Wayne

Hammer Time
by Cordeiro
Yes, I know its a cheesy headline. Maybe I'm being co-opted by the MSM.

After three years and untold expense, Travis County (Texas) District Attorney Ronnie Earle has succeeded in indicting House Majority Leader Tom "The Hammer" Delay.

I'm not a lawyer, nor do I play one on this blog. However, I am able to read an indictment. I have read the four page indictment handed down by Mr. Earle's Grand Jury. Contained therein, I can find not one single charge against Mr. Delay. The case laid out against Mr. Delay is so skimpy that a Brazilian Bikini is modest by comparison.

Here are the facts. Tom Delay is very effective at what he does - pushing through the House the Republican agenda despite the best efforts of Nancy "Bella" Pelosi and her band of House Jackasses. Delay is abrasive, arrogant, and extremely good at what he does. Democrats have been unable to defeat him at the ballot box, and Earle's sorry excuse for an indictment is their best shot at cutting him down to a size they can deal with.

My best bet is this never makes it to trail, however the MSM will forever refer to Delay as having been indicted for corruption. Never will they mention he was indicted by a political hack.

Memo to Mr. Earle: Jack McCoy you ain't.

Here endeth the lesson.

Of course, Delay is such a fine, upstanding fellow. No ethics violations, like, ever. No trouble with the IRS. No dodgy reporting on businesses with which he was involved. No House rebukes for ethics violations, either. Or, you know, three of them, with follow-up on those allegations circumvented by (shock!) the Republicans who made them being removed from the committee. Amazing.

Will this charge stick? Probably not. It isn't the strongest, and I've got my doubts about the intentions of the fellow making it. But that in no way exonerates Delay's previous behavior. He is what we call a Good Old Boy, and he's dirtier than a hog in a wallow. But since he's good at annoying Democrats (that'd be the minority in Congress... how talented, Delay, that he can overpower the weaker party!), well, any and all excuses will be made for him by people. He's a dirtbag, but he's a *useful* dirtbag, so it's okay.

Color me unimpressed.
