THE IRON LAW OF UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES:

DeLay Suggests He Might Not Retire (AP, 7/08/06)

Former U.S. Rep. Tom DeLay suggested Friday that he may not be ready for retirement just yet, a day after a federal judge ruled that his name must remain on the November ballot even though he resigned from Congress.

DeLay, who came home to Sugar Land for a previously scheduled event, also criticized U.S. District Judge Sam Sparks' ruling that the former House majority leader's name had to remain on the ballot.

"For this guy to say he can't tell where I'm going to be on Election Day, and that I am forced to be on the ballot, well, they may get exactly what they want," DeLay told supporters to raucous applause. Sparks is a Democrat appointed by Republican former President George Bush.


Nails...as far as his eyes can see.

Well, he did quit because he knew he was going to be a poster boy for the Dem's Corruptis in Extremis campaign that seems to never get started because some Dem keeps getting indicted. The Dems said they wanted him out, and they got their wish, which usually satisifies most people. But the Dems are never satisfied with just getting what they want, they want to also punish and hurt people in the process, and that's what's going on here. So I hope that a return of Delay is just part of the news that the Dems will have to endure come November.
