Our Newest Op Ed

DeLay's descent a win for pompous snobs
- By Michael M. Bates


Put me down as one of those disappointed with Tom DeLay's decision to give up his House leader job. No, not just because the guy takes a terrific mug shot, which he obviously does.

It's true he's under the gun for taking money from firms associated with lobbyist Jack Abramoff, but he could have played a grand game of gotcha for quite a while. Congressional Democrats, including all but a handful in the Senate, have accepted millions from the same special interests.

With the heavy cloud of corruption hanging over his head, Mr. DeLay bit the bullet. He did what he thought was best for his party.

Liberals are justifiably buoyed. Getting a conservative Republican scalp is always sweet, but this one is all the sweeter because Tom DeLay had once been - how do you say this in polite company? - a working man. How common.. ....................

According to the FEC, and contrary to the GOP talking polints, not a single Abramoff contribution went to a Democrat.

Not. One.

Zero. Nada. Nil.

That makes the talking point that Democrats took Abramoff's money, ya know, a lie. You wouldn't repeat a lie would you? Wait. You just did.

The FEC Abramoff file is available here. Please read it and identify the Democrats.
 
Unfortunately for you, you are WRONG about Abramoff not giving to Democrats. In FACT he not only gave to Dems individually, he even gave to the DNC!!!

Here is a partial list of Dems he gave to:

Democratic Senatorial Campaign Cmte $298,980

Democratic Congressional Campaign Cmte $243,500

Patty Murray (D-Wash) $40,980

Democratic National Cmte $40,300

Charles B. Rangel (D-NY) $32,000

Patrick J. Kennedy (D-RI) $31,000

Harry Reid (D-Nev) $30,500

Byron L. Dorgan (D-ND) $28,000

Tom Daschle (D-SD) $26,500

Brad R. Carson (D-Okla) $18,300

this is jsut a small segment that I bothered to type up for your education. See the FULL list of dozens and dozens, here

By the Way... Thanks to Freeper, PilloryHillary, for the info!!
 
Better check your list again. Abramoff gave ZERO dollars to Democrats. Spin, baby , spin.
 
...Juuuust keep saying those soooothing things to yerself, pally. Dems love to be ostriches! Pretend the truth isn't out there. Only repeat your talking points from the anti-American DNC over and over again.

Keep pretending being a Democrat can still mean you can be a real American.
