Reform, GOP Style

Its' good to see that indicted former Majority Leader DeLay won't have to go back to being an ordinary member of the House. His fellow GoOPers made sure Tommy would regain his old seat on the Appropriations Committee. Not only that, but he will sit on the subcommittee that oversees the Justice Department.

Let me see if I understand this- DeLay (indicted for campaign finance violations, money laundering, etc.) is tied to Abramoff (pled guilty to fraud, tax evasion and conspiracy to bribe public officials), and both are part of the GOP's corruption problem. So, after DeLay permanently (?) steps down as Maj. Leader, he takes a seat on the committee that spends our tax dollars. And, not only that, he sits on the subcommittee that oversees the Justice Department, which is running the investigation into Abramoff.

And this is what the GOP calls good government and reform? Are the American people really stupid enough to swallow this heaping pile of horseshit?
