So You Think You Can Dance? "The Code of DeLay: A Baroque Guide"
This is just such an artful and masterly crafted blog, that I doubt the freepy types could decipher it. However those with a modicum of intelligence and an appreciation for the arts will thrill on it....

Democracy Cell Project is pretty damn cool btw, worthy of a looksy every now and then for sure.

A few excerpts from this beautifully orchestrated piece...

-------
"The way that money moves in Washington and throughout government is obviously a Baroque dance, full of delicate complex patterns, furtive asides, bowing and scraping, and intrigue rivaling that of the Louis courts."

<<<<snip>>>> ( a very cool diagram is inserted here showing the intricacies of the Baroque)<<<<


A Notated Baroque Dance

Having never learned the money dance, but knowing a bit about Baroque dance, I offer the following guide to the choreography of Monsieur DeLays latest troubles:

Letat du Texas has a rule: a candidate for state office cannot accept money from a corporation.

Enter Monsieur DeLay, dressed in lace and silk stockings. The outcome he hopes for: more Republican seats in Congress. The pathway to that: Seize control of the Texas state legislature and then redistrict so as to assure the election of more Republicans to the U.S Congress."


-------
Please check it out....
