Friends, Republicans, Countrymen

In today's AmSpec column, I come to bury Tom DeLay, not to praise him.

Whith friends like you, who needs democrats or Islamists. This media frenzy will pass and traitors like you will take the name moderate. GAWD but I hate backstabbing cowards. From Blunts home district. I prefer Delay. The only thing close to as bad as a backstabber is a spineless media suck.

Which are you? There are no other choices.

Very interesting take on the situation. Delay may have helped the Republicans in the past but he has been a huge liability in the mor recent past.

Stealthy, shutchyo piehole.

A conservative critique of DeLay = Islamo-fascism?

You're an idiot.

John, right on on DeLay. I have a reflexive habit of defending Republicans, natch, and this thing has been in train for so long, from so corrupt a source that I certainly would have done so had the indictment come down before Tom's "fat free" declaration. On the merits, I doubt muchly that DeLay will be convicted or that it will even come to trial. The vagueries of the document don't seem to even articulate a crime... a conspiracy to commit an act that is not illegal? But in any event, DeLay sold out 60% of the Reps alleged reasons for existing with that one burp even if we were ignorant of his actions on spending heretofore. The correct response from elected Reps is... "Well, I doubt Tom would do anything illegal but let's take this as seriously as it warrants and let the judicial process take it's course." If we get a new Maj Leader that is fiscally superior it's worth much more than DeLay's scalp and I doubt it will come to that anyhow.

Well said! Very bold position you have. These guys are not fical consevatives, they can't sneak by you.
What do you think, maybe get the Dems to impeach Bush over Iraq, Katrina? Hey - Cheney might be better, huh?

Stealthy, jbr;

I don`t happen to agree with John in this case, but there is no reason to be nasty; we have enough of that crap from Democrats. John has a right to his opinion, and those of us on his side should listen curteously, and respond in kind.

I`m from Missouri, and love Roy Blunt, but don`t happen to think letting Democrats use Mafiosa tactics to get their way is a good idea. Still, reasonable people can disagree. Remember, we are all on the same side!
