I categorically reject cultural responsibility for Tom Delay

by Ziks511 / March 18, 2005 2:18 AM PST

"Real Texas politicians are neither hypocritical nor sanctimonious. A pol does what he must - fish gotta swim, birds gotta fly - but no pol of the Old School, when DeLay served in the (Texas) Lege, would add self-righteousness to shady dealing."

"Some civilians believe the definition of an honest Texas pol is one who stays bought. But among pols of the old school, the saying was, "If you can't take their money, drink their whiskey, screw their women and vote against 'em anyway, you don't belong in the Legislature." Many of our pols have the ethical sensitivity of a walnut. All this has led many to conclude erroneously that Tom DeLay, an alumnus of the Texas Legislature, is somehow our fault."

Don't forget that George "My Mind is a Thought-free Zone" Bush is a Texas pol too.
