DeLay: The Investigation, New Radio Ads and More

When to be skeptical:

1) A classified ad that says “Earn $50,000 a week, stuffing envelopes at home in your spare time.”

2) An e-mail saying “Hi, this is Your Bank. We need your account number and Social Security number so we can clarify some problems with your last deposit.”

3) “The House Ethics Committee has agreed to investigate misconduct by Tom DeLay.”

For those first two entries, your inner scam detector is probably going bzzzzzttt!. For #3, you should hear a deafening BZZZZZZZTTTT!!!!!

This newly castrated, defanged and declawed “ethics committee” will be “investigating” Tom DeLay under their new rules. Basically, this means that anything DeLay has ever done is perfectly all right as long as he was either by himself or with someone.

Have you voted yet? These three radio commercials are being broadcast nationwide. The one that gets the most votes will get the most air time. Check them out and vote for your favorite.

Unable to keep track of all of Tom DeLay’s moral blackouts? Can’t tell where one scandal leaves off and the next one begins? Hmmm, how many judges has he threatened so far? The answers are now just a click away. Check out the new Tom DeLay E-Z Sleaze Chart.

The next time conservatives try to tell you that DeLay is just a victim of “a witch-hunt” or “partisan bickering,” knock ‘em dead with some facts.

(I first saw this link on Against The Madness, but it’s been making the rounds.)

I wonder if they offer that as a poster suitable for framing! I might start a wall of shame...

Brother Kenya: That would be a trippy poster. Maybe it could be a trend; you'd see them everywhere.

As I was telling someone on another site a bit ago, it's sad that so many Americans let these NeoCons pull the Jesus-hood over their heads. They really have people conned that they are honest-to-God Christians. I really don't know how they do it but I do know God will severely punish the wicked one day. I am a Christian and I believe God is both sad and angry at what these people are doing. The very act of pretending to be religious to gain political support proves that they value power more than God's values. How can so many be so blind? I am sorry to rant but as a Christian, this really angers me.

OK Democrat: That's exactly right. There's a passage in the Bible -- I don't know the wording -- about praying privately; not making a public display of it. You're definitely not supposed to flaunt your religion like a badge or a status symbol. And for people who use religion as a political tool, I'm sure there will be a punishment for them.
