7. Only 12 citizens on a grand jury in Texas?
I only ask because a Grand Jury in NY has 23 jurors.

22. "Culture Of Corruption"
is powerful in my opinion, i've been using it a lot lately. It's even starting to be used in the media now after both dean and pelosi used it today.

24. Today's Press Briefing:
Edited on Thu Sep-29-05 02:38 AM by KTM
Q Does the President take the allegation of wrongdoing seriously, that Tom DeLay used the Republican National Committee as a money laundering operation to fund local elections in Texas? That's what the grand jury is indicting him for.

MR. McCLELLAN: That's what the legal process will proceed to address. And --

Q How seriously does the President take that allegation?

MR. McCLELLAN: Well, Terry, Leader Delay's office has put out a statement --

Q I'm not asking Leader DeLay's office.

MR. McCLELLAN: -- disputing the assertions. We need to let the legal process proceed. And that's what the President believes.

Q You just made a very strong statement about some acts of wrongdoing, alleged. Here we have alleged acts of wrongdoing. How seriously does the President take them?

MR. McCLELLAN: This is a different circumstance. And we're going to let the legal process -- we're going to let the legal process work.

Q Do you think this is politically motivated?

MR. McCLELLAN: We're going to let the legal process work. I've stated our views when it comes to Congressman DeLay; the President has stated them previously, and we continue to hold those views.

Q Is the President concerned that there's a stench of corruption around the Republican establishment in Washington?

MR. McCLELLAN: Terry, I don't think you can make such a broad characterization. There are some instances of individual situations, and we'll let those -- the legal process proceed in those instances.

25. A grand jury can indict a ham sandwich. The Effective T.P. is:
That Earle has indicted WAY more Democrats than Repugs in his career. I think I heard on AAR Radio News the ratio was, like 3-1. Somebody please verify if they heard that as well.

28. That's What I Told A Troll Yesterday
Then, Lott said that ham sandwich could be indicted if a DA was good enough.

Well, Starr couldn't get any indictments on Whitewater, the Travel Office, the FBI Files, etc., etc., etc.

So, apparently, Trent Lott thinks Ken Starr wasn't good enough.

29. "Culture of Corruption" is a great zinger for '06.
It also happens to describe them perfectly. The Republican Congress is one of the most corrupt bodies in the history of this country.
