    Kind of reminds me of a philosophical debate I heard one time... something about a chicken and an egg? That argument never had a winner, either, as I recall...
    Yes, but THIS thread is about that scum Tom Delay, and I see a lot of people attempting to deflect by saying "Democrats do it too, nyah nyah nyah". How about this? Let them start a thread on that scum Blago, and I will be happy to join in on the bashing there. I happen to be an equal opportunity basher. I hate every damn one of those sumbitches. LOL.

    Of course I understand. Progressives don't understand.

    The progressive idea of the Fairness Doctrine is turn Fox News into MSNBC, then invite 10 progressives to bully a non-progressive on an op-ed program...

    That's their idea of "fair."

    I'm talking about House and Senate members (both state and federal) getting popped for simple crimes, DUI, disorderly conduct, assault etc..

    If a republican gets a DUI its sensationalized and is front page news. If a democrat gets a DUI its buried. Sure both are reported but one (like I said) is sensationalized and the other is just a blurb.

You may want to try and rewrite history here, but history is what it is.... History, and no matter how hard you try and make it "disappear", it will still be here.
    I'm sure the neo-cons did.... But don't forget - unlike progressives non-progressives (republicans in this case) are not collectivists that play "follow the leader."

    BTW, I've talked to many republicans that denounced DeLay.

    I myself am not even defending him - I'm pointing out that it is epic BS that democrats can even sit here and pretend as if their crap doesn't stink....

    Re: Tom DeLay Sentenced To 3 Years In Prison

    Do progressives have reading comprehension problems?

    I never claimed brushes with the law didn't go unreported - I said they were buried - as in - not in the headlines - you know the "second page" on the way bottom - the place where people generally don't look while republicans who j-walk get the actual headline or at least make the front page.

    Read this and maybe you will understand, because this is how the progressive media promotes their bullcrap.

    Tom DeLay Sentenced To 3 Years In Prison

    Former U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, once considered among the nation's most powerful and feared lawmakers, was sentenced to three years in prison Monday for a scheme to influence elections that already cost him his job, leadership post and millions of dollars in legal fees. The sentence comes after a jury in November convicted DeLay, a Houston-area Republican, on charges of money laundering and conspiracy to commit money laundering for using a political action committee to illegally send corporate donations to Texas House candidates in 2002. Prosecutors said DeLay will likely be free for months or even years as his appeal makes it through the Texas court system.

    The whole thing is exactly what Dave Chappele exemplified in this bit called "Tron Carter's Law & Order". Two different justice system's indeed.
    Yeah, and Tom Delay was tried in the justice system when you go to jail for committing an act that was made illegal after you comitted it.

    Gotta love that, right?

    Re: Tom DeLay Sentenced To 3 Years In Prison

    Here are a few examples of what I'm talking about:

    DuPage County Republican chairman Ramey apologizes for DUI stop - Chicago Tribune

    Notice republican in the headline^^ was "democrat in any of your headlines? NO

    Idaho Republican senator charged with drunk driving - Chicago Tribune

    AGAIN^^ with "republican" in the headline.

    I can throw more out..

    BTW, both were front page news.

    Are you serious? I never followed his case, but if he was convicted for violating laws that did not exist, I don't get how that can stand on appeal.
