The Cynic In Me

Texas' highest court has ruled 5-4 to drop the conspiracy charges against former House Majority Leader Rep. Tom DeLay (R-TX). The cynic in me wishes to know the partisan breakdown of those nine judges.

But it is water under the bridge now. DeLay still faces two more counts that the courts appear to be letting go to trial. Here's hoping that Ronnie Earle can make his case, and DeLay enjoys some quality time in a Texas jail cell.

The partisan breakdown of those fives judges is the same as the breakdown of every statewide elected office in Texas for almost a decade now. 100% republican.
