On DeLay

Seems like the prosecutor's case against Tom DeLay is falling apart before a jury is even empaneled.

Of course, the Left will point to this as a "technicality" and a "miscarriage of justice". Of course when similar things happpened to their beloved Clinton, it was hailed as a "triumph of the law".

I , for one, hope it DOESN'T derail a full trial and presentation of all the evidence. The country needs this sordid mess sorted out, in as thorough a manner as possible. We need it to put all polititions on notice that they no longer have free reign to use funds in just any way they wish.

I don't know if DeLay is guilty or not, I suspect that he is "legally" within the bounds as they were at the time, and "morally" guilty of monitary sleight of hand....I believe that probably 90% or more of all other pols, of both parties, are just as guilty of the same.

I'm hoping that this trial will make them more circumspect in engaging in such behaviour....Yes, I know thats a naive, and most likely, in vain, hope, but then, as they say, hope springs eternal.

I agree with your sentiments. Hopefully, it'll make people even more disgusted with the current gaggle of plutocrats we have in office.
