Don't DeLay

In the first bit of evidence there might be a god, Tom DeLay has opted to drop out of the race to defend his Congressional seat after what Reuters calls "months of prayer and contemplation," which just by chance ended at the same time that "a second former DeLay aide, Tony Rudy, pleaded guilty in a federal corruption investigation that has reached into DeLay's office," according to the AP. So either there's a god, or lots of good prosecutors. Or a god who likes prosecutors. Or prosecutors who have no fear of those who act like they're god's buddy but are really corrupt contemptible hypocritical scumbags.

The AP also reports that "House Majority Leader John Boehner, R-Ohio, called his predecessor 'one of the most effective and gifted leaders the Republican Party has ever known.'" Boehner went on to say, "My name's not pronounced THAT way...what are you Beavis and Butt-head? But seriously, DeLay was one of the most gift-ed Republicans--trips, expensive things for his wife, money laundered through charities that made him seem generous but merely made him rich--hard to beat the gifts he got."
