Tom DeLay: Starting to Slip?

Things are looking up for America's patriots and democracy-lovers. We The People are starting to close in on the Hammeroid. (And thank you Newsblog5000 for that new DeLay nickname.)

Thanks to 20,000 e-mails, the five corporations that have been donating to Tom DeLay’s defense fund are feeling the heat. So far Verizon, Nissan North America and American Airlines have agreed to stop contributing to the Hammeroid’s defense fund.

That leaves RJ Reynolds and Bacardi USA. Click here to send an e-mail to these two holdouts. If they think DeLay’s corrupt power and influence are more important than We The People: there are plenty of cigarette brands not affiliated with RJ Reynolds; lots of good rum out there besides Bacardi.

And still another blow to the Hammeroid: two members of the House Ethics Committee — who had been hand-picked by House Speaker Dennis Hastert — have excluded themselves for possible conflict of interest. Reason: they themselves have donated to DeLay's legal defense fund. Honesty and decency are starting to bloom.

But wait, don’t get complacent yet. Keep their feet to the fire. If you think the Hammeroid needs to be investigated, click here. This petition will demand that House Speaker Dennis Hastert appoint a Special Counsel to investigate DeLay.

We need to find out everything we can about how such a sleazebag achieved this much power, and how to avoid repeating these fascist adventures in the future. We need to do whatever it takes to prevent future Taliban wannabes from trying to take over our country.

The best thing of all to top DeLay's crooked career would be to lose his office to one of the Democratic Congressmen who lost their job because of DeLays little rezoning scheme. He just might lose it at that. Nick Lampson, one of the said Democratic Congressmen in a neighboring district, has said he will run against DeLay. I hope he wins by a large margin! That would be the icing on the cake for Tom "Bloody Hammer" DeLay's political career.

Ran to that website and sent a letter to Bacardi, (I don't smoke, so I felt weird writing to RJ Reynolds). The sooner we get this sleazebag out of office the better. He represents everything evil and reprehensible about self-serving politicians. He truly sullies the name of public service.

i.m. dedd: Thanks.

OK Democrat: That would be poetic all right, DeLay losing his seat to one of the Democrats he gerrymandered out of office.

Kate: Thanks. We've got to keep Bacardi's feet to the fire. They're not the only rum in town.

That's a fine thing to say about Nancy Pelosi. (How does she maintain the altitude of those eyebrows anyway?)

And thanks for posting those links. I'll be sure to use them to tell Bacardi et al not to withdraw their support for Delay.

I'm pretty sure he'll ride this one out.

Jack Jones: I don't have any opinion one way or the other about Nancy Pelosi.

DeLay sucks and his machine is starting to crack. Drink all the Bacardi you want; it won't help.

Hammeroid is perfect. He certainly makes me shift uncomfortably every time I see him.

Jack Jones, when DeLay get indicted, I'll drink a toast to you. Make mine Cuervo.

Jet: Yeah, I like Hammeroid. I only saw it on that one blog; I'm surprised it hasn't caught on more. Sure sums him up.

I don't even like rum so I don't care if I ever drink Bacardi. I'm more into vodka. Now if Stolichnaya turns out to be a DeLay supporter, I've got some serious soul-searching to do.
