  •  I have two suggestions for Dems... (none)
    on which two arteries of DeLay's to hit: Carotid (neu-AsianTravelGate) and femoral (Texas campaign finance violations).

    Perhaps just go straight to the aorta (scandal, yet TBD), Kung-fu master-style.

    Which Dem is most likely to deliver the smackdown? Any other DAs from Texas care to step forward to squash "The Bug" other than Ronnie Earle?

    •  2 or 3 Dems (none)
      should be tasked with publicly pummeling DeLay - day and day out. Aside from educating the general public about his astounding lack of ethics, we should be getting more repubs on the record defending this slimeball. This is partly about DeLay and partly about the republican party.

      He could not have his fingers in so many cesspools without the blessing of his party. We should make sure they carry his stench long after he's gone.

      •  This week. (none)
        This week there are 114 of them, so far. That's how many are cosponsoring a bill that will repeal the last of the GOP rules changes that neutered the ethics committee process on DeLay's behalf.

        H. Res. 131. And it's even got one Republican on board so far: Chris Shays.

        •  Beautiful (none)
          Only one republican? They really do put party above all else, dont they? They don't seem to have even the slightest interest in actual governing.
          •  No its all party (none)
            discipline. I think Shays is going to be in trouble for exhibiting moral courage
            •  Shays should have support. (none)
              Emphasis on should.
              •  sent this letter to my Rep. (4.00)
                Mr. Gutknecht,

                I am writing to ask that you support House Resolution 131, which will repeal the ethics rulse change that you have publicly stated you opposed in the first place.  Currently there are 114 Democrats, but only one Republican.  He deserves more support for having the "moral values" to do what is right, not what will protect party interests.  Just in case you have forgotten, here is what you said regarding the new ethics rules:
                "Although I was meeting with Taiwanese dignitaries and was unable to attend the meeting where this change was passed, I would have opposed the rule change. I believe that politicians need to hold themselves to a higher standard, and any attempt to weaken rules designed to prevent the impugning of the House of Representatives is a step in the wrong direction.  As lawmakers and national leaders, we should hold ourselves to the highest standard of integrity and I believe that both parties should work hard to ensure that members of their caucus are held to the strictest ethical standard."


                If you fail to support this legislation, your hipocrisy will be revealed to your constituents.
