Ronnie Earle: Political Hack

OpinionJournal.com has some background on Ronnie Earle, the prosecuter who has been dogging Tom DeLay for so long:

Mr. Earle had indicted three other DeLay associates in the same case in September 2004, just six weeks before the last election. Followers of the case have speculated that, as he saw his legal bills mount, one of those three may have decided to testify against Mr. DeLay.

The Majority Leader also deserves the presumption of innocence because of Mr. Earle's guilty past. A liberal Democrat, he has a history of indicting political enemies, Democrat and Republican, on flimsy evidence that didn't hold up in court. In the mid-1980s, he indicted Attorney General Jim Mattox, a rival of his ally Ann Richards, on bribery charges. Mr. Mattox was acquitted and won re-election.

In 1993, he indicted Kay Bailey Hutchison, who'd just been elected to the U.S. Senate, on charges of misconduct and records tampering. Mr. Earle was forced to drop the case even before it went to trial. Earlier this year, the prosecutor delivered a widely criticized speech at a Democratic fund-raiser in which he compared his prosecutorial targets to "Mussolini and his fascists" and all but declared that he had Mr. DeLay in his sights.

Some legal minds on the Right - including "the Great One" Mark Levin - have observed that this particular indictment doesn't list any specific charges against DeLay, but rather includes him on a guilt-by-association basis with no rationale as to why. Expect that the strength (or lack thereof) of this case will be scrutinized by the Pajamahadeen.

New Kerry Documentary Dissects Failed '04 Campaign

Looks like there's a new behind-the-scenes examination of the John Kerry Presidential Campaign coming out soon. The film, titled "Inside The Bubble", reportedly presents a harsh view of the French-looking Massachussetts Senator (who, by the way, served in Vietnam) and his political operatives. A press release for the film calls the Kerry campaign:

..."a disorganized, contentious, self-absorbed team that thought they could win by 'not making mistakes,' and keeping their candidate in the public eye without clarifying a position on anything."

Hillary AND John McCain To Meet With Cindy?

OK, I can understand the rationale for Clinton giving Sheehan the time of day. She's got plenty of Left-wing nuts pressuring to do so.

But McCain?!? This is the guy who spent five years at the Hanoi Hilton while war protesters back home gave support and comfort to the enemy? He's meeting with this moonbat?

Now I know McCain is a media hound and suffers from an irrational desire to be liked by everyone. But this should have other Vietnam Veterens' blood boiling. I can only hope that he's taking this as an opportunity to verbally bitch-slap her and try to shame her for her bull-shenanigans.

I'm not holding my breath.

RI's Chafee - Better Safe Than Sorry?

Jayson at Polipundit makes the case for the White House backing Lincoln Chafee for reelection.

Chafee votes for cloture on every bill and every appointment, and his voting record on the merits is very similar to that of putative “conservative Democrat” {cough} Ben Nelson of Nebraska. But a Rhode Island Democrat taking over that seat would be an automatic loss of one net vote – on every issue – to the Boxer/Kennedy/Leahy/Kerry wing of the MediaCrat Party.
I'm still not 100% convinced but - when you consider what may be at stake in the Senate - it's hard to argue against it. As he says: "this isn't an ideal world".

Stop The Presses! President Bush Actually Uses the Potty!

Reuters has finally captured evidence that the President does, in fact, go to the bathroom - despite speculation that he has a magic digestive system controlled by Karl Rove!

WTF is this all about? I mean, it would at least be somewhat interesting if he had written: "Condi, cover for me. I have to go heave a Havana!" or something crude like that.

But this makes the Reuters wire?

CNNUSATODAYGALLUP Poll: Only 13% Blame Bush...

Well, the moonbats must be feeling a little glum this morning. Drudge is reporting that a new poll shows that of all the people or institutions that are to blame for the aftermath of Katrina, a mere 13% said "George W. Bush".

Honestly, the number should be more like zero. But the poll is not of registered voters, just "adults" - which means that Bush-haters could just as easily be over-sampled as undersampled. I'd bet you dollars to munchkins that if you asked that same 13% "Did George W. Bush lie about his reasons to go to war in Iraq?" they'd ALL say "Hell, yes."

So as I mentioned yesterday, this pathetic "blame Bush" drumbeat being pounded by the Left has fallen on deaf ears. It's nothing more than Bush-haters preaching to the choir.

UPDATE: Here's the CNN story.

You can just bet this'll happen...

Atlanta's most famous Libertarian Talk Radio Personality, Neil Boortz, makes a prediction that, I'm sorry to say, I agree will come true:

Hurricane Katrina was a natural disaster, no matter how hard the media tries to make it look like a man-made, or Bush-made one. 9/11 was an attack on our country by a foreign force, not an intense low pressure area. But mark my words ... before one more week is over you will hear demands that the victims of Katrina get huge government payoffs just like the victims of 9/11; and anyone who dares to disagree will be labeled a racist.
Sadly, I think it's inevitable.

Quote of the Day...

"Cindy Sheehan is yesterday's news; she couldn't attract a camera crew this morning if she stripped down to her step-ins for a march on Prairie Chapel Ranch." - Wesley Pruden
Read the rest of Pruden's Washington Times column on the Left's feeble attempt to play "gotcha" on the President.

It's the Poppy and Bubba tour...again

Dubya tapped #s 41 and 42 to raise private funds for disaster relief for the Gulf Coast.

Now don't get me wrong, whatever their efforts yield is terrific for those in need. But am I the only one who gets creeped out seeing these two together. Clinton most definitely benefits from this association, and I have no doubt that he plays it up to the hilt. As I said once before in a previous post, it's like Bill is becoming the Tom Hagen of the Bush family. Yech.
