Nancy Pelosi statement on DeLay indictment:
"The criminal indictment of Majority Leader Tom Delay is the latest example that Republicans in Congress are plagued by a culture of corruption at the expense of the American people."

4. Infor on Ronnie Earle who will be called a partisan Hack!

PHOTO OF RONNIE EARLE

NOTE DATE ON STORY BELOW....

DeLay's first line of defense will be to scream that the Democrat Earle is on a partisan witch hunt. Earle's unsuccessful prosecution of Kay Bailey Hutchison in 1994 for allegations of misappropriated campaign funds while she was State Treasurer will be his Exhibit A, and it will carry some weight. Earle will point out that he's prosecuted quite a few Democratic politicians in his day, with his biggest scalp being that of former Speaker Gib Lewis. I will expect much sound and fury, with the usual results. But I'll keep an eye on it anyway, just in case.

36. No way you can call him partisan
I'm glad there are people out there who get everybody. A crime is a crime no matter who you are or what party you are apart of. I'm tired of republicans thinking they are above the law.

11. You know, people who hate homosexuals are usually hiding something...
Is there something you would like to tell your parents about your lifestyle?

17. I think the technical term is 'projection'.
Assigning a negative characteristic or attribute to someone else because they fear or identify with it in themselves. He probably has track lighting and his name is Rick, Steve or Mark. ;-)

32. A most quotable movie.
Actually probably the most quotable 'chick flick'. My favorite line?
'I'm a size 8, but an 8 1/2 feels so good, I buy a size 9'. Classic!!

22. His name is RD Brown, and his internet account is with
SWBell. Not rocket science on my part, I clicked on properties on that foolish gif, and voila, there it was for all to see--he simply used his own page to put his picture up. Dunce!!!! Can't even troll with panache!

37. Not defending but sometimes a person just hates anyways
It doesn't always mean they have "something to hide." Sometimes they're just full of hate for someone else which is really sad.

The only thing that he is qualified to do is make an ass out of himself.
