"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

Chutzpah

Oh, how the high and mighty will fall. Tom DeLay is attempting to circumvent normal legal procecures by asking the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals to dismiss charges or order a trial immediately.

"Travis County District Attorney Ronnie Earle said in court documents that the Republican is "attempting to leapfrog" over the usual court procedures by asking the state's highest criminal court to dismiss all charges against him or to order a trial right away."

And the reason for doing this? Well, he wants to maintain his position as majority leader.

"He has been pressing the state's highest criminal court to address the charges quickly because he wants to regain his post before his colleagues call for new leadership elections later this month."

Since when is a person's job so important that we have to alter legal processes for the convenience of his job? Remember, this man is INDICTED ON FELONY CHARGES. So why would he deserve any special considerations? If you can't do the time, Tommy-boy, don' t do the crime.
