Guess who just called? Tom 'Bugman' DeLay!
OK, so it was a recording, but I'm sensing some desperation in the repug party. He chatted about the out-of-control DA and partisan distraction, also letting me know about some fluff he's sending out next week with talking points to prove his innocence.
Damn, that was fun to listen to. I could hear him sweat!

:rofl:

4. Is he doing this to everyone?
Or is he just doing Dems to taint the jury pool so he can eliminate them from his jury?

9. He may have my name due to one of those innumerable
petitions I've filled out. I'm always getting junk mail from him and KBH. For some reason they think I agree with them. :shrug:

10. Benefit for Delay outside Houston
At the HESS club(?). It was posted in GEN, hope it was cross-posted here and y'all turned out a DU "reception" party.

11. You know, the Republicans talk a good game about personal responsibility
and whiny Democrats/liberals, but doesn't this deflection of blame to the DA and liberals come off as a denial of personal responsibility and whiny? I'm just wonderin' if his base is accepting this crap, because from my vantage point, one cannot have it both ways.

13. Oh babylonsister I'm so sorry you had to hear that
But you should have saved it. We could have put it on the net and all had a laugh.

Sweet dreams, think of that elephant in prison stripes.

Sonia

15. I had no idea who it was; caller ID said
'Private Message' which is usually my sister. But no-o-o! I love the sound of desperation in the p.m.

16. I was asked what the prevailing feeling is among
most of the bugman's constituents. Do you have any idea, WHD? I don't, though I'm hoping his flock have had it with him.

18. Can't say I've heard anyone defend him who he hasn't paid off
directly, except for right wing pundits
