"Mr. Earle is a fanatical partisan hack," Tom DeLay...
Post-Independent Counsel activities

After five years as independent counsel, Starr resigned and returned to private practice as an appellate lawyer. Starr is now a partner at Kirkland and Ellis, specializing in litigation. He is one of the lead attorneys in a class-action lawsuit filed by a coalition of liberal and conservative groups (including the ACLU and the NRA) against the regulations created by the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act of 2002, known informally as McCain-Feingold Act. In the case, Starr has argued that the law is an unconstitutional abridgement of free speech.

On April 6, 2004, he was appointed dean of Pepperdine University's School of Law. He was originally offered this post in 1996, however he withdrew from the appointment in 1998 after the Lewinsky controversy erupted and required his full time attention. Critics charged that there was a conflict of interest due to substantial donations to Pepperdine from billionaire Richard Mellon Scaife, a Clinton critic who funded many media outlets attacking the president. In 2004, several years after President Clinton's impeachment, Starr was again offered the Pepperdine deanship and this time accepted it.


As of March 2005, Starr was working to overturn the death sentence of Robin Lovitt, who is on Virginia's Death Row for allegedly murdering a man during a robbery in 1998. Starr is providing his services to Lovitt pro bono.

Dean Starr often refers to the years of the Clinton and Whitewater Investigations as the "unpleasant years." Some considered him to be on track to become the next justice of the United States Supreme Court when the Whitewater investigation interrupted this possible career path....More...

Tom and the GOP can dish it out, but they can't take it!

Republicans Threaten Judges

Tom DeLay Threatens Federal Judges. Tom DeLay blasted the judiciary members involved in the Terri Schiavo case, threatening that they will have to answer for their interpretation of the law. This loss happened because our legal system did not protect the people who need protection most, and that will change, House Majority Leader Tom DeLay added in a statement issued hours after Schiavos death at a Florida hospice. The time will come for the men responsible for this to answer for their behavior, said the Texan.

DeLay: Republicans Will Target Judiciary. Speaking with reporters in Houston, DeLay said lawmakers will target an arrogant and out of control judiciary that thumbs its nose at Congress and the president.

Looks like Tom upset a few judges with his blather!

6. Remember this.
Any attack they put on others is true of them. When they call somebody partisan, it's because they themselves are being partisan. When they call a person a liar, it's because they themselves are lying. When they call somebody a fanatic, it's because they are the fanatics.

You can take any name they use on others and be absolutely certain that it reflects right back on them.

19.  Delay Must be desperate and dumb at the same time
Does anyone think it is ever a good idea to attack and smear the AG on your case? I mean really, what can DeLay possibly gain by this? Especially when you find out the 12/3 figure of Earle (12 Dems indicted vs 3 Republicans) which completely innoculates him from this foolish grandstanding.
