[politics] heh, heh... he said 'indicted'

BREAKING NEWS AP Updated: 1:35 p.m. ET Sept. 28, 2005 WASHINGTON - A Texas grand jury on Wednesday charged Rep. Tom DeLay and two political associates with conspiracy in a campaign finance scheme, forcing the House majority leader to temporarily relinquish his post. DeLay attorney Steve Brittain said DeLay was accused of a criminal conspiracy along with two associates, John Colyandro, former executive director of a Texas political action committee formed by DeLay, and Jim Ellis, who heads DeLay’s national political committee.
Happy dance...

Corruption in high office. Shock.

I turned it around - if Russ Feingold were indicted would I be happy? Naw.

He (Delay) broke a law and laundred campaign money and generally tried to game a byzantine system. This is news, sure but it's just politics.

Now if Delay is indicted for dwarf tossing or diddling a nubile but minor child .. then we've got news.

Which is not to excuse corruption of course. It happens, it shouldn't, the guilty should be punished. But there are bigger fish to fry.

Yeah - it's pure schadenfreude on my part. But still - cracks in the facade and all that...
