Tom DeLay resigns.
Hmm. Not yet, but I feel confident we'll hear that before the end of the weekend. Hello friends, thanks for stopping in. I want to talk about what angers me about this whole Tom DeLay thing. Believe it or not, it isn't him getting his fellow GOPs kicked off the Ethics panel for exposing him. I don't hate him for funneling illegal campaign donations through his wife and kids. It doesn't freak me out that he has been taking millions from the Ruskies for his campaign. I am not totally freaked out about him hosting the Taliban in the late 90's in Texas to discuss the Afghan pipeline idea. How about him redrawing the voting jurisdictions in a case of Gerrymandering to painfully obvious that Texas dems fled the state to avoid participating in such overt fraud? Nothing there. How about when he used he emergency powers to have the FAA drop everything (like watching for terrorists) to track said Democrats down? How could such a guy wake up to himself every day? Could he be the worst and most corrupt politician ever? Hmm, he certainly has this century wrapped up.
No biggie. Dude is a pig and a thief and a liar and a cheat. This is America though, and certainly in politics that isn't a stretch. What upsets me is not that his crimes are obvious and documented and factual. Dude is SO very guilty of so very many things, no one is sure which one to prosecute on. What I want from Tom DeLay is to quit. Step one, quit. Plain and simple. Now, here comes the genius move he could do to save his ass and his party's as well.
