Saint Tom of Sugarland

I haven't said much about Tom DeLay (R-Graft) recently. I'm not sure why--perhaps I'm just too busy making the case for kicking Florida out of the union.

Luckily, others are on the job. Like, say, the New York Daily News (we used to link to the Daily News all the time; not so much since Jimmy Breslin retired), which yesterday reported that DeLay's former deputy chief of staff just copped a plea, and rolled over on his boss, DeLay's former chief of staff Ed Buckingham. Tony Rudy, the guy who copped out, didn't implicate DeLay. But just wait and see what Buckingham says. Five'll get you ten he sings like a little boid. That's right. A boid.

Over at Talking Points Memo, Josh Marshall makes the case for DeLay's beatification. It might be the funniest thing I'll read all day.
