Depends on What the Meaning of "Is" Is... 

Y'know, the more I hear these rich, old, male, white assholes try to spin the DeLay indictment, the more I'm going to enjoy throwing Republican bullshit c. the Clinton Impeachment right back in their faces. As in, "You wouldn't let Clinton pull this excuse back in the day, you can't try it now..."

Ted Koppel just did a very nice and subtle raking over the coals of DeLay's lawyer on Nightline, as the lying sack of shit (the lawyer, not Koppel) tried to claim that the charges upon which DeLay has been indicted don't really mean what they say they do and that the crime in question wasn't really committed. Koppel very simply and brilliantly kept saying, "Obviously, you're more up on the details of the case then I am, but the indictment says there was money laundering..." To which the Attorney would try to dance and sing around the fine points of the issue, claiming that no money donated by corporations in Texas went back to candidates in Texas, it went to candidates in other states, blah blah fucking blah. And despite the fact that there's a big fat honkin' check, the smoking gun, the evidence that the Attorney's claim is pure horseshit.

And then, Nightline follows up with Howard Dean reeling off the crimes and misdemeanors of the current Administration and their Party, with the challenge that "We need a president to stand up for ethics in government, and we don't have that president now."

My god, the media is actually doing its job. But, after being hosed by the Administration into reporting the "Black people are running amock in New Orleans" lies post-Katrina, they're probably feeling a bit used, too. And there's nothing more vengeful than a betrayed mistress.

The Republican Party has been abusing, betraying, cheating on and pimp-smacking its mistress for the last five years. But -- the biatch has finally wised up, and she's holding all the cards. Which means that her abusive master is going to wind up holding his balls in a sock, begging for mercy while pounding on the ER door.

Heh heh. I like that image, and that metaphor. DeLay's will be the first set to fall to the floor, but expect more to follow.

" Yes, depart a lot at this time and cut the approaching any more, or we fire arrows at the tops of your heads and make castanets out of your testicles already!"
