Delay Has Problems Tuesday, November 22, 2005

A deep southern bow to the young lady atMajikThise for this one coming from the Hotline blog.

Tom Delay lost another round in his criminal indictment in attempting to get the charges dropped. It doesn't look good considering Speaker of the House Denny Hastert told him that if this isn't fixed byt January, elections will have to be held. I'd say it's both the sake of the agenda and the elections.

How long this will drag out isn't known for sure but if the Republicans want a shot at doing well in 2006, they either need to get Delay off the hook ASAP or cut him loose completely because while's he's an exceptionally astute albeit crooked politician, he's starting to pick up an exceptional amount of baggage. It could get much worse if the Abramoff/Scanlon scandal goes back to him and it's entirely possible it will.

From preliminary looks the Abramoff Scandals going to make the last 10 years of supposed Scandals look like the most moral of actions.

My real dream is Abramoff deciding to squeal on the lot for immunity. I hate to see a rat like that get off, but he wasn't elected and has never taken oath to serve the American people.

Personally, I'd love Harry Reid to step forward, take responsiblility and then rope the rest of these SOB's that took payoff in with him as he drags the lot of them down. It's hard to not enjoy such a well deseved series of punches to the body politic as has occured in the last few months. It gives me some small hope that America can be saved... emphasis on small though.
