    point taken

    meanwhile, charlie and maxine still sit smack dab in nancy's caucus

    party on, progressives
    i'm interested in discussing delay's predicament....there is a thread already for rangel, if you wish to discuss him, that is the place to do it...why the hardcore push to try and change the topic?

    Re: DeLay convicted of money laundering charges

    I couldn't agree more with the sentiment that this isn't about partisan politics. Conservative's assertion that we don't have the right to comment on this issue because we don't live in Texas is absurd. He was the leader of the House and he was a criminal. He was an adulterous man who led the charge to impeach Clinton -- what a hypocrite. He improperly took money from lobbyists and sold his vote to the highest bidder. He was a criminal and a shameful man, it is our right to comment on his fate. Ironically, defending him simply because he is a Republican is what Conservative is doing. Anybody condemning him is clearly doing so because he is a criminal and deserves to be punished.

    Re: DeLay convicted of money laundering charges

    Hey I wonder what Lardass (Rush Limbaugh) has to say about this? Anyone know? I normally can't stand to listen to him but I'm curious what his take on it is.

    Wasn't Delay instrumental in getting Bush on the road to the Whitehouse or am I thinking of someone else?

    Conservative: He's done put a fork in 'em. Get over it. He'll be safe in prison though. Too old to be someone's bitch.

    let me repeat this slowly for you, they are not the topic here....tom delay is...again, charlie has a thread started about him, and i'm sure if you look , you can find one about maxine and geithner. stay on topic, which, again, is delay.

    You really are out of touch with reality, go back to your make believe govt. as I hear that Hulk Hogan is out of a job and would be good candidate for a state office in Minnesota. Whether he deserves to be punished or not is up to the courts and from the actual testimony this verdict will be overturned. What are you going to say then?

    he's being punished

    there are some rather prominent people, however, who aren't

    in fact, a few of em are wielding quite a bit of power, y'know, TODAY

    deal with them

    What does DeLay's support for Bush have to do with anything. DeLay didn't make 52% of the people vote for Bush in 2004. You really need to get over your BDS as it is unhealthy.
