Oh, how the 'mighty' have fallen on their own swords! One down, thousands more to go....the whole of the Bush Admin., RNC, DNC, more than half of Congress and lots of other Beltway Bandits belong in Prison and the key thrown away!

...I just learned an interesting bit of trivia....DeLey owned an extermination company before he went into politics....!:top:
