1. What about the Grand Jury members?
They are the ones who handed down the indictment. They had to be shown evidence that was compelling to them, so there must be something there. Where there's smoke, there's fire.

2. Earle's on CNN now, said he indicted many more Dems than Repugs
in the past. Only 3 Repugs, and either 12 or 15 Dems. Yeah, really a partisan Democratic prosecutor...

3. it just won't work. Too many bad news for the GOP to be able
to control the facts that are coming from all directions against them.

4. You know,
I appreciate those who watch the "news" and report to us but for your sanity take a few days off. Really. It has helped me focus and regroup and I worry about you all who still watch this crap daily. I gave up on Tweety looooong ago. Just hoping you can stay sane.

7. Well actually i just tuned in to see what they are saying about this.
I never watch the crap either, and Tweety reminded my why.

It's off now, and I already feel sanity returning. :D

9. Good.
I turned it all off for the most part before November and I feel so much better, my mind is clearer. Sometimes I just really worry knowing how it made me feel when I used to watch it.

Ahhhh, sanity returning. Good for you and thanks for letting us know what you saw. It is important but so stressful to watch.

10. We've been hearing this same BS from DeLay ever since this began
I think the official count is 10 Dems and 2 Repugs to date.

He doesn't like corruption in government and isn't afraid to pursue charges on any politician that is corrupt, no matter what party they are affiliated with.

18. The show has been fairly balanced
Also, Chris said that Earle was accused of being a partisan, not that he was partisan ( I'm a partisan, so I don't think that really that bad a word actually)

40. That would be a hidden confession
Yes I was wrong, but we're all doing it!

What's that? Representical disobedience?
Give Earle the names of the others and I am sure he will be happy to oblige. One at a time though :)

:cheers:

30. wrote him an email - went a little like this...
Mr. Matthews Re: Earle being a partisan hack.

Could you do your frigging homework BEFORE you spout off for once! Is that too much to ask?

Took me about 10 seconds to find this from DailyKos on my coffee break you.are.a.joke.

"During his long tenure, Travis County District Attorney Ronnie Earle has prosecuted many more Democratic officials than Republicans. The record does not support allegations that Earle is prone to partisan witch hunts." This assertion supports Earle's own claim about his record; a March 6 article in the El Paso Times reported: "Earle says local prosecution is fundamental and points out that 11 of the 15 politicians he has prosecuted over the years were Democrats."

His highest profile prosecutions include a Democratic state supreme court justice, a Democratic attorney general, a Democratic state treasurer, and a Democratic speaker of the Texas House.

to msnbc viewer services (viewerservices@msnbc.com ) and let them know that Tweety just made an ass of himself (again) on their air.

34. The heart of Delay's crime has been blasted even by conservative papers
in Texas. The heart of the matter is that Delay's PAC was using funds illegally raised and improperly attributed to affect local state races. My local legislator--Ann Kitchen--and others were defeated narrowly because of a last minute campaign push by TAB, who used corporate money to violate spending limits to send out last minute mailouts. They tried to skirt the law by not actually endorsing a candidate, but only blasting one and praising the other. They also did not print attributions on the mailouts, so no one knew who paid for it.

THis give the Repubs control of the state legislature, and two years later they used that majority to redistrict the Congressional seats in Texas, costing the Democrats seats in Congress.

Behind TAB (Texas Association of Businesses) was Delay's PAC.

So don't let anyone tell you this was a partisan issue. The law was put into place to prevent exactly what happened from happening, and the effects of this crime were far reaching.

39. I actually thought Tweety was more against DeLay than Earle
I normally can't stand to watch him but he seemed fairly impartial today...maybe even a bit more on the DeLay-did-it side.

42. Live by the sword , die by the sword Tommy boy.
You made yer bed and now you have to sleep in it.

Once a crook, always a crook.

Is that enough of those?
