"The information of the people at large can alone make them safe, as they are the sole depositary of our political and religious freedom." --Thomas Jefferson 1810
Is it just me, that finds it completely Ironic, that retired Generals are speaking against the civilian leadership (or lack thereof) about a war that was conceived by the civilian leadership?
Hey Krauthammer, great idea! Its a hiuge jobs program this wall of yours. It would be a great subsidization of and an enormous economic boon to the South! Tax dollars would flow freely to the contractors that will be building this wall of yours.
Josh points us to the WaPo article that tells us that Tom Delay basically hung around to get MO money for his Legal fees:
An additional impetus for putting off the resignation until now was suggested by John Feehery, a former aide to DeLay and House Speaker J. Dennis Hastert (R-Ill.). "He needed to raise money for the defense fund. That was the bottom line," Feehery said. "He wanted to make sure he could take care of himself in the court of law." Under federal campaign rules, any reelection money a lawmaker raises can be used to pay legal fees stemming from official duties.
