Part Deux

Part Deux

Well, Tom DeLay is out as the Republican leader in the House. He tried to have the case in Texas thrown out of court, and have the trial date sped up because the "innocent man" that he is (he could be), is hoping that he will be aquitted (and he could be) in hopes of avoiding any potential impact on his re-election plans for 2006.

It looks like the fun is only beginning for Tom DeLay. If it wasn't bad enough that he stepped down from his leadership position within the party you can bet he'll be looking over his shoulder when Jack Abramoff starts dropping dimes on all his old associates.

What are the chances that Abramoff drops the dime on DeLay? Is it possible that these two could end up as roomies in a federal prison of a federal prosecutors choice? Out of Delay and Abramoff, which one has the greater chance of becoming the cellblock "bitch?"

If Delay is convicted or pleads guilty and does time, Abramoff is the more likely of the two to be abused in prison, because he is (marginally) attractive (in a oleaginous sort of way). Even convicts called Bubba have standards. Delay looks like a lizard (acts like one too, but that's an issue for the likelihood of his conviction rather than the likelihood of him being sexually attractive enough to assault) and would be less likely to be attractive* to a predator. Although you never know. There might be some lizard-humping cult in the federal prisons. Stranger things have happened.

*I know, I know. Sexual assault is a crime of violence, not desire. But in the prison system, all things being equal, those choosing their unwilling partners will more likely target an attractive partner. Delay just wouldn't be that, for anyone. Ever. Can you imagine touching that man willingly? I can't. Ick.

Foilwoman, just to be clear that's one vote for Abramoff.

As an aside, I enjoyed your comments so much tht I think I am in love. Of course, in deference to comments I made regarding to your Jan 10 post, I will continue to "pray" for you.

Fine. I was voting for Abramoff. And you can be in love all you want. Get in line. [That's sarcasm, but actually, admiration is always welcome, and hey, male admiration? Even better. So thank you. Play your cards right and you might even get a knitted sweater out of the deal. Well, probably not a sweater, but maybe some nice, hand-knit socks.]

So here's another question: has any woman ever cared enough about Cheney, Abramoff, Dubya, or any of the loathsome ilk to actually knit them a sweater? I say no. That would just be wrong.

I don't think that Cheney, Abramoff and Dubya would know or appreciate the true value of a woman knitting them a sweater.

I don't think they appreciate the true value of anything. Pompous little pricks. Well, they aren't getting a sweater from me.
