1. Oh Jesus Christ Gibson!
Is there anyone in the United States who doesn't believe Tom Delay is a crook?

2. Wow! The column seemed written for Grade 3 reading level
Wow! The column seemed written for Grade 3 reading level. I don't often Faux, so should I be amazed at this, or is it typical for Faux?

9. O'Lielly was surprisingly critical of DeLay.
Cant stand the dude, but he was pretty pragmatic on "if Tom is guilty he should pay the price" in contrast with his guest - KellyAnn Conway - who had her nose up DeLay's butt.

10. sounds like Fox is stuck for somethig to say!
Isn't it nice for a change to see Fox stewing in their own juice? They are finding it hard to dredge something up to counteract the De Lay thing

11. It took brass balls to go after an indictment.
Earle must have known the right wing media would come after him with the usual smear and slime tactics.

All the more reason to believe it's an air-tight case.

13. "going after Tom DeLay because a check went here instead of there..."
No, he's going after Delay because he SENT a check here instead of there (breaking a state law).

14. So, uh, how come district gerrymandering for the GOP in Texas is okay
but in California it's so partisan and unfair that it REQUIRES a ballot initiative... and a Diebold-Friendly GOP installed SOS to oversee a special election?

16. hell, I just couldn't resist . . . I mean . . .
there at the end of Gibson's article was his e-mail link . . . s-o-o-o-o-o . . . I dropped him a line . . . just for the halibut . . .

john-boy . . .

do you have ANY idea how completely stupid you sound? . . . I mean, people are LAUGHING at you! . . .

just keep whoring for the BushCo criminal enterprise, and you'll go right down the tubes with them . . . couldn't happen to a more deserving fella, imo . . .

sleep well . . . lots more prostituting to do tomorrow, don'tcha know . . .

less than cordially,

A VERY Infrequent Viewer
(only when I need to remind myself how completely irrelevant the "mainstream" media have become)

17. Hume means DeLay isn't a "bully"?
Jeez, I'm glad he cleared that up. Guess his nickname "The Hammer" means he's really a good carpenter.....

22. That's Their Best Defense? DeLay Is In Some Deep Shit!
Usually Faux puts on a full court press when one of their own is being scrutinized. This is their main man after Bush and this is what they deliver. Holy shit this is like sending in the cheerleaders and cleaning crew to play the Spurs.

Tommy Turd Is Gonna Get MotherFucking Hammered.

19. The whoredom is ridiculous.
"Transparent prosecution?" Well, THAT'S a new one, isn't it?

If I recall correctly, a prosecutor is supposed to hold up their side of the argument as best as they can.

Should we be looking for a "transparent defense," as well?

Well, yes, I guess we should be. Right, John?
