    He tried to illegally make the State of Texas permanently GOP red. Gerrymandering is something that I don't like, but must accept. Illegally laundering money to back GOP politicians for the State Legislature I don't like, and do not have to accept.

    Throw his ass in stir for 11 months, then parole him for 10 years. That should be enough of a black mark to keep him out of future politics.

    How did that affect the vote in the 2004 and 2008 Presidential elections where Bush won by 3 million votes and McCain won by 1 million votes, Perry won in a landslide as did KBH and Cornyn. Those show the majority support and have nothing to do with redistricting.

    BTW, I have one relative in Kingwood, and she is well off. It is the other relatives that are the problem, and they live in Houston and Livingston.
    Again, that is your opinion, the people of TX disagreed with you and voted overwhelmingly for Bush both as Governor and as President. You are entitled to your opinion no matter how wrong it is. GW Bush did nothing to hurt you or your family and beat the hell out of both Gore and Kerry. You sure have selective reasoning skills.

    Non-sequitur. I said redistricting was OK.

    Stacking the State Legislature sure in Hell affects me and my family. That's what he was convicted of doing.

    As I pointed out what DeLay was convicted of doing had zero affect on national policies.

    Hhmm…zero effect eh? His laundered money funded seven campaigns in the lone star. Six of that seven won and the result was, the Texas legislature was in republican hands for the first time.

    So what did the hammer do next? Why of course, the reasons for his crimes against America in the first place, he used that to gerrymander the districts,and we have seen what happened, more republicans went to congress in 2004.


    Thus entesr the era of the hammers crimes against America. One could say that with the appointment of John Roberts on September 29, 2005, Samuel Alito on January 31, 2006 brought us corporate funded government.

    So your statement that had “zero affect “ on the national scene is…well,adds a big zero to your credibility.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say
