While I was looking to reference the Snow Baby entry, I ran across this (dreadfully misspelled) entry about Tom DeLay. Once again, I feel warm and fuzzy knowing that he's looking at the very real possibility of removal from office and a prison sentence. The fact that the Supreme Court is reviewing his diabolical redistricting in Texas only intensifies the feeling. The republican scandals substitute nicely for the lack of a roaring fire on winter's day.
Just a few weeks after the election of W for a second term, the world looked very bleak indeed. Nearly a year later, things are still pretty screwed up with the US leading the screw ups internationally and the ethically-challenged White House driving us further into soviet style central policing, but I feel a bit better as the Bush downward slide seems to be picking up steam. With the recent revelations that W authorized domestic spying in direct disobeyance of legal prohibitions, do we dare hope the slide ends in impeachment?
