So today the Republicans in congress decided to preemptively shield Tom DeLay’s job, you know, just in case he gets indicted.
So that’s the motivation for changing the rules, which until today would have put DeLay’s position in jeopardy if he were indicted.
But who put that rule in place in the first place? Oh yeah, the Republicans, back in 1993, when they wanted to specifically remove key Democrats (the GOP was in a minority then).
Hypocrites. Cowards. Fuckwits.
