    Tom Delay issued this statement after Terri Schiavo's death:
    Now I know he's talking about possibly bringing these judges in to answer as to why they did not adhere to a federal subpoena issued for Terri and following a newly passed law to look at the case anew- maybe even possible impeachment. But the left is trying to shut this down (possible hearings) by saying this talk is a way to incite physical harm to these judges. Perhaps even advocating it.

    I think the libs are a little worried there could be some real repercussions for these judges - and to save them means making it look as though some politicians are calling for civil unrest through acts of violence. That way republicans back off and no congressional hearings.

    And if Tom DeLay backs off his statement by as much as one syllable, he'll have given creedence to a shameful, disgusting political trick - the oldest one in the book. Dilute, deflect, misdirect. Smoke and mirrors. Sleight of hand. When your ideology has been exposed as the soulless, barren sham that it is, discredit your opponent - the more shrilly and hysterically, the better.

    How stupid is America? We shall have our answer very soon, I expect.

    Welcome to the board, Wolverine!

    I could say the same about Kennedy - except make it permanent.

    Did you see Lautenberg's letter to DeLay, Mr. P? What do you think?

    I think the problem with the Democrats accusing are alittle confused if they think Republicans have to be violent to get what we want. We are the party in power. The party in power doenst have to resort to violence to get power. the who accusations just don't make sense.

    Bullypulpit was kind enough to reproduce it - in its entirety (and, apparently, with a straight face) - in the General USA Chat section, in the "Tom DeLay - Shameless political opportunist" thread - page 5, post #66.
