8. Tom Delay should do the honorable thing...
and perform seppuku.

INSTRUCTIONS:
the warrior would prepare for death by writing a death poem. With his selected attendant (kaishakunin, his second) standing by, he would open his kimono, take up his wakizashi (short sword) or a tanto (knife) and plunge it into his abdomen, making first a left-to-right cut and then a second slightly upward stroke to spill out the intestines. On the second stroke, the kaishakunin would perform daki-kubi, a cut in which the warrior is all but decapitated (a slight band of flesh is left attaching the head to the body). Because of the precision necessary for such a maneuver, the second was often a skilled swordsman. The principal agrees in advance when the kaishaku makes his cut, usually as soon as the dirk is plunged into the abdomen.

10. Done, but he won't
until he gets carted off in handcuffs. These creeps have no sense of what's right whatsoever.

11. Damn- this whole "conservative movement" is OVER.
It took them decades to build up their momentum, and it blossomed into 5 years of unabashed cronyism and corporate looting. An orgy of corruption. How pathetic.

These are interesting days. I think we're about to see the Republican Party shatter. A big political realignment is coming.

13. I voted YES of course but I really hope he pushes his "innocence"
for another year so the gopers can't run an even sleazier dickhead in his place.

Hold on tom, keep fighting you prick! 12 more months outta do it.

19. I voted "No." If he resigns, the GOP machine can distance themselves.
I think it will be fun watching him in the House, running for election, looking to serve as Majority Leader again "as soon as these troubles are behind," while an ugly trial is proceeding, each step blazoned on the front page.

:evilgrin:

23. I do not think he should
If the dems pressure him to do so, and then he does, then we will see prosecutors bringing up bogus charges on dems here and there and trying to force them to resign. I am almost inclined to wonder if that is not part of their game plan.

That said - I do hope he does :)
