Judge rules against DeLay group

Raw Story talks to Chris Bell regarding Tom Delay's latest headline grabber.
“Obviously he was hoping the judge would rule in favor of the defendants and he would have declared it a great victory,” former Texas Rep. Chris Bell told Raw Story Thursday. “And now I think that he has to realize that his arguments aren’t going anywhere, and the web is getting bigger and bigger.
As we all know, the story on this guy is far from over.

The righties speak to soon and end up with their foot in their mouth...
Tom DeLay - You're probably scratching your head on this one, because you're thinking to yourself - "I haven't heard anything about Tom DeLay in a couple of weeks." This is my point, exactly. When the liberals and the media kicked that door open so hard it slammed back and hit them in the nose (i.e., DeLay's numbers started going UP and the libs received some MAJOR embarrassment thanks to my post on the anti-DeLay rally that was widely disseminated), that hubbub died down very quickly.

ha! A qoute from his personal lawyer? The facts are his dirty paws are all over this and 100 other matters and his buddies are dropping like flies. It all ties back to him...

You know Chris, I feel Sugar Land turning bluer by the minute...I have two neighbors here in First Colony that voted for Delay (one had a goofy yard sign) who have expressed their disgust with him and his activities and will not vote. That's two less votes in a four home area.

I see Clear Lake turning bluer, too. People in the grocery store are mad at him. Even people at church. Won't it be fun to see DeLay go down?
