Well, he's kind of had it in for me ever since I accidentally ran over his dog. Actually, replace "accidentally" with "repeatedly," and replace "dog" with "son."

Tom De Lay's Campaign Against the Constitution

NPR is reporting that Tom De Lay is so upset that the courts did not support Congressional Republican's demand to keep Terri Shiavo's body alive that he has asked his minions to look into ways to get the judiciary more answerable to Congress and or punish the judges who didn't vote the way he wanted. De Lay is of the opinion that the Shiavo case shows that the judiciary is "out of control and unaccountable." I'm sure LTG would agree with me that this is exactly what the Constitution independent judiciary that is not accountable to politicians or under their control!

Comments? Discussion?

Tom Delay saying someone else is "out of control and unaccountable"? That's the pot calling the kettle black. In truth, the independent judiciary is the only institution trying to preserve traditional American values in the face of the Republican onslaught. Delay doesn't like them because they are the only check on his own power grab.

It is instructive that in the 1930s, even when the Supreme Court truly was out of control, enforcing a particular economic theory, the Congress resisted efforts to meddle (the so-called 'court packing' scheme that is, coincidentally, the same formula that Pope J P II used to 'reform' the college of cardinals).

Yes, Tom Delay is an ignorant bigot, but what else is new? The problem is not so much with him (what do you expect from a pig but a grunt?) as the frightened middle class that votes for such idiots because they think that no amount of government debt or war is as bad as the fear that somebody might raise their taxes (even without evidence).
