Countering Josh Marshall

As former law enforcement, with knowledge of these things. I have read the indictment of Rep. Tom Delay and ask,

"Are you f-king kidding me? I mean, is this it?"

The Fifty Dollar Challenge. Read the idictment and tell me exactly what Delay is charged with. Not generalities.

If I would have prepared probable cause affidavits like this I would have ended up on parking detail.

Oh, who am I kidding - it's not the outcome or the merit of a case we are talking about here, to Democrats it's simply the accusation - EXCEPT when it involves one of their own.

Of course Earle knows this isn't going anywhere, it's not designed to do anything but to damage Delay politically. Well done you hack.

Just remember, "What goes around, comes around." my man.

Democrats and the Moonies are already screaming about a "Culture of Corruption".

Ya, Oki-Doki....

Witness Talking Points Memo Josh Marshall who asks:

"House Majority Leader Indicted for Criminal Conspiracy.

Senate Majority Leader the target of an increasingly serious probe of potential insider trading.

Rumors of October Rove indictment in the Plame case.

Is this a problem yet?"


Well Josh it depends on what you mean by "problem".

For instance, is this a problem for Senator Chuck Schumer?

The Man in the Mirror

Or is this a problem for Senator Nancy Pelosi?

Pelosi Ethic's Violations

Btw, we're still waiting for Nancy to answer this query.

Or Sen. Jon Corzine's

"stock options".

Or Senator Reid

Money Connected

If so, then perhaps it's a problem. If not, then it's simply a matter of who the MSM is focusing on.

And as always Josh, to quote El Savior - the man who knows all about indictments as he led the most corrupt government in American History. Who, as a matter of fact owns all the records:

The only president ever impeached on grounds of personal malfeasance

- Most number of convictions and guilty pleas by friends and associates*
- Most number of cabinet officials to come under criminal investigation.
- Most number of witnesses to flee country or refuse to testify.
- Most number of witnesses to die suddenly.
- First president sued for sexual harassment.
- First president accused of rape.
- First first lady to come under criminal investigation
- Largest criminal plea agreement in an illegal campaign contribution case
- First president to establish a legal defense fund.
- First president to be held in contempt of court
- Greatest amount of illegal campaign contributions.
- Greatest amount of illegal campaign contributions from abroad.

So when you say "problem", it all depends on what you mean by the word "problem". For instance, it's like the word "sex".......

"Hypocrites kick with their hind feet while licking with their tongues"

-Russian Proverb

Cpt Ed weighs in with some ethics and possible disbarring facts about DA Ronnie Earle. I hope that when it's said and done Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott looks into his conduct. Simply put, enough is enough.

As usualMichelle Malkin(fastest typist I know) is keeping links going. Polipundit with commentary and comments. Tom Mcguire; Blogs for Bush, with a h/t to bfb on NRO great post on the Media Blog. AJ Strata locks and loads. And the The Politburo Diktat has a fact sheet on Ronnie Earle.

UPDATE: To answer the "He prosecuted more Democrats than Republicans", the fact is that Mr. Earle has used the office he has to go after POLITICAL enemies, no matter which party they are from.

All roads lead to Travis County btw, you know, home of Burkett. Yeah, no agenda here.

UPDATE II: Oh Yeah!.

UPDATE III: If you want to see that the left knows it's bogus watch "hunter" at Daily Kos decend into the pit of insanity. Ain't it fun?

UPDATE: IV: Eleanor Cliff is partying like it's 1994 for the Republicans. Truth is that the American people aren't so easily decieived by a partisan (movie star on a mission from God) prosecutor. At last count (see above) Democratic scandals far outdistance Republican's 2-1.

And they haven't seen anything yet. Wait and see.
