No comment.

House Republicans proposed changing their rules last night to allow members indicted by state grand juries to remain in a leadership post, a move that would benefit Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-Tex.) in case he is charged by a Texas grand jury that has indicted three of his political associates, according to GOP leaders.

I’m so proud to be an American.

    I definitely agree with you, Nancy. What was especially bemusing is that the GOP wanted these rules adopted when Dan Rostenkowski was showing what a turd he was, but now shoe’s on the other foot.


    Embarrassed Conservative 🙁

    It’s so… Texan. Remember the redistricting hijinks? Remember the Alamo?

    That’s why I’m a Republican — we’re tough on crime.

    Please read that and try to put this in context. DeLay is being targeted by the exact same people (and I know a couple of them personally) who were in the “Texans for Truth” group that was involved in Rathergate and all kinds of other ridiculousness against Bush. The very same folks.

    Please understand what’s actually happening here.

    Good find, Will. Point taken. I still do not find it very palatable that my fellow conservatives are back-pedalling on congressional rules they themselves clambered for in the 90’s.

    OTOH, it has been said that you can indict a jar of mayonnaise. It would be ridiculous to deny a chairmanship to someone indicted on spurious charges.
