A ray of hope?

One of the good things about posting late is that I am able to see more of the day's news to pick from. Today it's the ray of hope story from Texas that, at least for now, keeps Tom Delay on the ballot increasing the chances for a Democratic victory in this congressional race.

The federal district judge, a Republican appointee if you are wondering, ruled that DeLay must appear on the Nov. 7 ballot as the GOP nominee for the congressional seat that he abandoned last month. Although Delay resigned from the House, so that he could spend less time hurting families, the judge said that under Texas election law Republicans would not be able to replace him on the ballot. This makes the election of former Democratic House member Nick Lampson very likely. Unless of course the Texas 22nd District is more nuts than I think and re-elects a resigned in disgrace, under indictment, capped-toothed, short, paunchy bully who claims to have moved to Virginia. The GOP is expected to appeal the decision to the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals.

So there is a ray of hope coming from of all places Texas. One down and fourteen to go.

the Texas 22nd District may very well be more nuts than you think.

You beat me to that comment Captain. Texans are fanatics for their corrupt leaders.
