DeLay is DiStressed

Go out of town to attend an incredible weekend of events (neither Randy nor myself were amongst those protestors arrested on Monday during a White House sit-in, though had I not been in a meeting with Maxine Waters and a fantastic fellow activist and had Randy not had prior commitments which meant he couldn't stay, we might have very well seen the inside of a jail cell) and political news decides it needs to keep on churning.

And oh, how it does churn. Not only is Michael Brown dancing as fast as he can before Congress (while he still remains on the FEMA payroll), but that darling of the Republicans, the effervescent Tom DeLay, has been indicted in a campaign finance probe. And it looks like the kindly Doctor Frist (whose medical license should be revoked due to such beliefs as the HIV virus can be transmitted via tears or kissing and Terry Schiavo was not in a persistent vegetative state due to watching a video tape) is feeling the heat as well in relation to questionable stock sales.

I'm still trying to catch up on the Hurricane Rita news - stay tuned.

Update - 9/28/05 - 4:07pm: If you're in the mood for a good laugh, check out the New York Times transcript of DeLay's response to the indictment. Much like the man himself, his words are completely out of step with reality, as Ronnie Earle has mostly prosecuted Democrats in the past.

Poor lil' picked-on DeLay. The man just can't catch a break.

(Tip o' the hat to Ray in Austin for the DeLay transcript link.)
