I just like the way it sounds.

Tom Delay indicted for illegal campaign financing, I’ll say it again, Tom Delay indicted. I just like the way it sounds. After years of pushing it to the ethical edge and at least five admonishments for it, Tom Delay finally slipped and fell flat on his face. Of course that’s not how the Hammer is telling it.
You know the drill, when accused of something don’t defend, attack. Ronnie Earle; the man prosecuting Delay, is a partisan zealot out to derail a distinguished career. It couldn’t have been Delay’s fault. He lives a special rarefied place called, the GOP no guilt zone. It’s a magic place where all you have to say is, “I’m not guilty” to make it so, whether its outing a CIA agent, starting an illegal war, handing out no bid contracts, screwing up disaster relief or illegal, campaign financing. If you say you didn’t do it, you obviously didn’t do it. Why? Because you said you didn’t do it, silly.
Of course, the no guilt zone is only open to those who serve under Emperor George Bush. The good news is, as of this week, thanks to Tom Delay, it’s in the process of being redistricted.
