One of the people the Angry Left hates is our own former Congressman, Tom DeLay. Travis County DA Ronnie Earle is a member of the Angry Left due to his Quixotic attempt to prosecute Mr. DeLay. Too many Democrats can't see Mr. Earle's personal vendetta. In fact, I've pointed out how some members of the Angry Left don't even think a crime is necessary to prosecute Mr. DeLay. Even Cragg Hines of the Houston Chronicle can't seem to escape the thought processes of the Angry Left.
Since the Angry Left is so irrational, too many Republicans assume that all criticisms of Tom DeLay are baseless. That thinking is just as illogical as the thinking of the Angry Left. Irrational behavior also explains the strong support the local Republican Party showered on Mr. DeLay in the 2006 primary election.
Why do I bring this up today? "News Hounds" is a voice of the veracity-unconstrained Angry Left. (The tagline of "News Hounds" is "We watch FOX [News Channel] so you don't have to." The implication is that nothing on Fox News Channel is credible.) Anyway, "News Hounds" has a piece regarding a recent appearance by Tom DeLay on the Fox News Channel. Here is the headline of the posting:
While Concealing Guest Tom DeLay’s Federal Indictment For Money Laundering And Forgetting Instances Of His Own Deceit, Hannity Sermonizes About Media Integrity
No one would like to see a federal indictment of Tom DeLay more than I would. Unfortunately, at this point, there is no such indictment. Elevating Mr. Earle's partisan-inspired state indictment to a very real and equally serious federal indictment demonstrates a reckless disregard of the facts. I'll be honest here. When I see a headline with that kind of factual error, I don't bother reading the article. I'm sure it is littered with vitriol and factual inaccuracies.
My point is serious, though. Just because "News Hounds" isn't a serious observer of events, and just because Ronnie Earle is a partisan hack, don't for a minute believe that Tom DeLay doesn't face serious criminal liability for his corrupt behavior.
