Pow! Nailing the Hammer

Tom DeLay was indicted today by a Texas grand jury for conspiracy in a campaign finance scheme. He's been a vicious and greedy power-broker for years, but finally, through the hard and courageous work of a lot of people who DeLay attempted to strongarm or otherwise intimidate, he's been called and will have to answer. Word is he will step down as House majority leader.

After Iraq, Katrina/New Orleans, "Brownie" and FEMA, Karl Rove's treachery, Halliburton and $4 gas, and now DeLay's demotion, Congressional Republicans are peeing their pants over the inevitable losses they'll take in the 2006 mid-term elections.

7pm, later that day: Time magazine agrees.
7:30pm: the Post reports there are Mafia ties.

Now is the time for the leftist coalition to step up the pressure.

Fantastically good news, even if the Hammer never does time. Say goodbye time: prepare for the celebrity golf circuit.
