He has dropped his run for reelection and will probably resign by May:

Republicans always throw their own to the wolves.....One thing
you can say about the Dems is they fight for their people no
matter what.

Many politicians stick to their convictions.

Unless their convictions stick to them.

The demwits have had their prayer answered. DeLay is out of
Congress but he is NOT Out. The dems may regret the day they
started this witch hunt. I predict Tom will be as effective
as ever in politics even if he's not in DC,

"The dems may regret the day they started this witch hunt."
Ah, so this was a witch hunt. And Whitewater was a search for the truth?

I guess we found both!

So, when is he "coming Out?"
It would seem you have inside (first-hand) knowledge the rest of us don't.

Bet he still thinks the Vietnam War was a just and noble cause and effective doesn't mean corrupt. Except that it calls for a capitol "D", I can't disagree with the "dimwit" or even better "Dumbocrat" phraseology.

So there you have it folks, your choice either the Democrat dimwits or the Republican thieves. Good luck with that one!

And here I thought you'd appreciate my not commenting on your posts, some people just need that that little bit of extra attention they can then think of as love.

Don't get down on yourself like that man, register Republican a booster shot of self-esteem (merited or not) is part of the deal.

Maybe move down the Jersy 'pike to Orange County.

I, for one, am sorry to see him go. If he'd had the guts to stay and fight it would have made even worthless Democrats look good in November.

G'man is right though, at least enough to provoke a good laugh. Thanks!

Now he can have time to sit on Trent Lott's porch and admire the view with Newt Gingrich.

I can't help but think that this is an orchestrated move. DeLay, probably the most corrupt politician from either side over the past few decades, is crying all the way to the bank!



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

2 months ago all you heard was "railroad job!!!", "bogus charges!!" "witch
hunt!!", even while all delay's close associates where pleading guilty to this,
that and the other.

now delay steps down, some people still think he's clean? come on....

yeah yeah ...."innocent until proven gulty" but if it looks, sounds and acts
like a duck..

One slimeball down. A few hundred more of his colleagues (on both sides of the isle)to go.

Hey...maybe there's still hope for our government?

































































Nah.

To the naysayers, until I see proof of the charges against
him, I'm not jumping on your bash Delay train. Nothing has
been proven - just headlines - and, God knows that is what
this country is fed on - lies, outrageous charges, etc. I'll
put my money on Mr. DeLay's coming out of this smelling like
Roses - Thomas was a doubter also. If you can be shook up so
much by the media that bashes everything our party, country,
etc. stands for, you are the ones who the media seeks out.
Do us proud, Mr. DeLay; do us proud!

The hard left will be in ecstacy today, to them this is as good as a guilty plea.

I don't care which side of the isle I'm on.
As long as it's the one with Ginger AND Maryann.

All such politicians deserve long stays on an island. McNeil comes to mind, since San Quentin has closed down.

That's news to all the prisoners still sitting in San Quentin.
I bet they'd like to know they can just walk out of there.

Perhaps you meant Alcatraz?

I thought that God was on DeLay's side; therefore, he HAS to be innocent.

(sigh) Yes. It's been too long since I've seen the Northern California coast. I just referred a friend to the Mendocino Botanical Gardens in Ft. Bragg and I should have gone along.

Studs Terkel said that DeLay just made the smartest move of his life. He went from working for private interests to working for private interests.

DeLay is only stepping down because the idea of losing an election is too much for him to take. Not because he thinks he did something wrong.

He will do VERY well no matter what happens. Even if they do manage to get some charges to stick.
