It's delightful, it's delovely, it's DeLay's indictment

I think it's just swell that House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (ex-Leader now, since he had to resign under a rule passed by Republicans as one of those laws they pass to look moral that later boomerangs on them) has been indicted for criminal conspiracy at such an opportune time. I've been worried that Bush's screw-ups on Katrina and his inept handling of Iraq weren't going to harm the Republicans much. With the Democrats
working to seem as Republican as possible
I thought it was likely people wouldn't really see the Democrats as a viable alternative, and might decide that while they hate Bush he's just one screw up and the Democrats have supported him almost as much as the Republicans have.

But DeLay's predicament is terrific, because with people still down on Bush for his incomprehensible terrible reaction to Katrina and for Iraq, her comes Tom to say, look, we're not just stupid, we're also crooked. You've really got to hit Americans repeatedly over the head with a hammer before any sense gets knocked into them, but even the densest are going to notice this at least a little.

  1. came across your entry bout comments. i hear that. here i am, sharing the one prose of writing i've ever truly meant, and when I finally get comments, my heart palpitating to think someone was moved like i once was and never again will's advertising. it feels like mockery. not that i write for anyone elses entertainment. i care not for talking to strangers. but still, i prefer a worthy comment over another way to get a different variation of spam. i read some of your stuff (it's time to go home or i'da read more). some amusing, some way over my head. but hey...this right a genuine comment.
