Tom DeLay, under pressure from colleagues and the fact that he is in an election-year lobbying scandal, abandoned his effort to remain House majority leader on Saturday. It wasn't his fault it was the democrats and the bleeding heart liberals. The latest coming from the hard hitting, always honest, and never biased Fox News (video link). Transcript excerpt below.
DELAY: And because of that rule, the Democrats used this runaway District Attorney here in Austin, Texas to abuse that rule. Eight grand juries indicted me, and the only reason to indict me is to get me to step aside.You hear that? Its the only reason. I have to admit I added the "and the dems can suck it" part, sorry. But the fact remains that its a massive conspiracy against Tom DeLay! Isn't this the land of innocent until proven guilty? Its money laundering, what crook...I mean politician, doesn't money launder? And mind you these aren't the spineless Al Gore-John Kerry democrats of yesteryear, these fellas are the real deal! They have the power to create massive conspiracies and get you kicked out of exclusive clubs and have you step aside from your governmental positions.
ANCHOR: You said just a moment ago you suspect that this was the real reason you were indicted because the Democrats wanted you out of the role of Majority Leader.
DELAY: It's the only reason, Brian. And the Dems can suck it!
Hell, they even have the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals in their pockets. Today the Texas' highest criminal court denied Rep. Tommy DeLay's request that the money laundering charges against him be dismissed or sent back to a lower court for an immediate trial.
Let me tell you one thing, even if this conspiracy thing was true it would be a good thing. Why? because it would show that the Democrats can successfully conspire on something. But its not, so they haven't, and Tom DeLay is a fool and a liar. So there.
