Tom DeLay's guide to criminal justice

Here's what Tom DeLay said on October 9, 1998, about the impeachment of President Clinton:

"This nation sits at a crossroads. One direction points to the higher road of the rule of law. Sometimes hard, sometimes unpleasant, this path relies on truth, justice and the rigorous application of the principle that no man is above the law. Now, the other road is the path of least resistance. This is where we start making exceptions to our laws based on poll numbers and spin control. This is when we pitch the law completely overboard when the mood fits us, when we ignore the facts in order to cover up the truth.

"No man is above the law, and no man is below the law. That's the principle that we all hold very dear in this country."

Now that the tables are turned, of course, DeLay's tune has changed. Now he wants us to "ignore the facts in order to cover up the truth." Considering that one of the charges against him comes with a possible life sentence, Mr. DeLay had better exercise his so-called faith and start praying...hard.
