I must disagree with Mr. Tabin regarding the premise of his article. The Democrats for too long have been trying to compensate for their diminishing electoral base by sliming and smearing. Ronnie Earle has been an especially ardent participant though not particularly successful in these hijinks.
The Dems will continue on this path until they are made to pay. Now is as good a time as any. These charges seem particularly frivolous and if Mr. Earle is humiliated in court (as he was in his pursuit of Kay Bailey Hutchison) it will be a start. The problem with Senator Hutchison is she is too nice. After Earle put up the white flag, she went on her way. DeLay suffers from no such malady as being too nice and after he is exonerated will surely exact just vengeance.p>The DeLay episode is rightly called an opportunity, but it is opportunity to begin to change the Dems’ behavior on these matters. Let me end with a prediction. In a couple of years Tom DeLay will still be in office but Ronnie Earle won’t. br> — Billy Watson br> Garland, Texas /p> p> John Tabin leaves me perplexed. Temporary relinquishment of leadership? Republicans are actually thinking of reinstating him if he is acquitted? And railroaded? This district attorney or whoever indicted him has indicted lots of Democrats in the past for corruption — were they railroaded, too, or does this just apply to Republicans? br> — Dan Robbins br> Richmond, Virginia /p> p> Well, people in Texas have heard of Ronnie Earle. He went after our senior senator the same way and had his case thrown out. This was the sixth grand jury he had tried to get an indictment from and I guess six times is the charm. But I have to agree that DeLay is out of touch with spending and it will not hurt to have a new leader.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
