8. you know the problem with Teflon?
if you put it under too big of a fire, it burns, the fumes are toxic, and anything can stick to the residue...

3. YOu beat me to the post! I'e been thinking about Dean all day and
how happy he must be that his comments of months ago seem to be coming true! I can't wait to hear Dean's comments tonight!!!

Seems like almost all the comments that Dean has been slammed for are coming true.

4. DeLay's lawyer? Not Tommy himself?
For an innocent man hounded by groundless, baseless allegations, you'd think he'd want to present his case personally rather than hide behind the screen of his hired mouthpiece. Those Republicans! Always wanting to strip everyone else of legal representation, but they're the first ones to lawyer up at the first sign of trouble.

11. If that's DeLay's defense, he is toast.
The corporate money went from TRMPAC to the national rethug committee. DeLay's lawyer is arguing that yes, the national rethug committee sent money back to Texas, but it was different money.

Uh huh.

10. Lawyer says none of that money came back to Texas
He said it went to other states that allow corporate contributions. I'm wondering how he knows this or what the repukes are doing to cover their asses.

12. They laundered money through DC
but none of "that" money was sent back to Texas. How do they know? Because they drew little horns and mustache on Ben Franklin on each of the bills they sent.

23. Dean did an excellent job
Handling the question "Is this good for the Democrats"

His answer was (paraphrasing) "No, it's not good for the country. We've been embarrassed by the blunder in Iraq, we've been embarrassed by the Katrina response and now we have to be embarrassed with this serious case of corruption... this isn't Tom Delay's first, second or third time he's been in trouble, it's his FOURTH and in each time, his peers in Congress have found him guilty. Americans are sick of the pattern of corruption and when we get back power in 2006, we're going to fix some serious problems with the rules of politics..."
