It's official:
House GOP OKs Rules Change to Allow DeLay to Keep Post if He Is Indicted on Corruption Charges

Revolting. However, the idiot right neglects (as usual) to see the full ramifications of what this might involve. If DeLay were to be indicted, the Dems (if they had any spine left at all) would be able to use this fact strategically, pounding the message home repeatedly on talk shows, newspapers, etc., that the Republican-controlled House is led by someone who is under indictment. Let DeLay and Rove spin it any way they like, the fact is the crux of the truth will finally get out there for the public to digest. The key is to make it known. The goal is to have Letterman, Leno and The Daily Show making fun of it, for that is when you know it's registered and the farce and hypocrisy has truly struck a chord.

As Lord Acton once said, "Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely." It occurred with Newt Gingrich when he overstepped and I believe with this rule change, it's happening again. Yes, a repugnant maneuver, but in the end perhaps a very just outcome.
