You're Outta Here!

Don't point that finger at me you prick. Yes, he was once one of the most simultaneously powerful and corrupt majority leaders in modern congressional history, but now he's going to have to go back to spraying Bug B Gone around the edges of peoples yards in some crappy suburb of Houston (Yes, that is in fact what he used to do before he ran for congress). Its official: Tom DeLay will NOT seek reelection this year. This probably had something to do with one of his top assistants pleading guilty to conspiracy over the weekend and promising to help the government's investigation into DeLay's dealings with Jack Abramoff. Or maybe baby Jesus told him to do it or something.

And although it is somewhat surprising that it took THIS long, considering that the guy ran a modern day Christian right wing free market version of Tammany Hall for several years, we can still look at this as a small victory for common sense. Here is the Dallas Morning News article.

Its pretty sad when not even Karl Rove can save you from your fuck ups, isn't it?

Oh, and here is a Time magazine piece on his retirement. Its really funny. DeLay claims that he smiled in his mug shots because he "wanted people to see Christ through him." Blow me.

It seems like people are into the politics posts on here about as much as they are into The Killers. But oh well. I'll keep posting them.

(Anonymous from above) yes the youth culture of this decade especially locally is completely apathetic to anything beyond hipster drama and hair styles... and beards. If only the amount of time and passion they spend ridiculing each other and their music would be put towards making their community a better place, maybe it actually would become a better place. Keep posting.
