"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." Theodore Roosevelt

The Anvil vs. The Hammer

It can take a long time for a blacksmith to wear out a hammer, but the anvil will still be there showing no wear even after dozens of hammers are tossed aside. Today the 'anvil of justice' has hammered (sorry, couldn't resist the pun) Tom 'the Hammer' DeLay. DeLay's bid to have the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals force his trial immediately or drop the charges was denied. So not only did he withdraw from the election for House Majority Leader, but he has now been made totally ineligible. AND, he will have to wait for his trial, while prosecutor Earle subpoenas additional records related to DeLay's dealings with Jack Abramoff.

Nostradamnthem is thinking this - that in order for DeLay to want to be re-instated as HML badly enough to want to risk and immediate trial and the possibility of being convicted, there must be either a lot of crooked people he thought he could squeeze for an acquittal, or a lot of money involved in holding that position, or both. Certainly in an environment as corrupt with bribery and pay for access as GOP K Street Washington, the HML who conceived the K Street Project may be getting a slice of every transaction. At least, that is the way organized crime would be doing it, and this is definitely organized crime - bribery, money laundering, influence peddling, voter registration violations, vote fraud, lying to Congress, treason, and God only knows what else is going on.

Remember the map of the alleged Clinton money laundering thing? The one that involved Bill authorizing Arkansas Redelevopment Loans for people, thru Hillary's Rose Law Firm? Whitewater, wasn't it called? Anyway the map looked like a spiderweb of Arkansas names. Well, just wait until you see the map of the Abramoff / DeLay Access-gate scandal. It's going to make Whitewater look like a street map of Podunk compared to a map of D.C.
