No One Anticipated the Levees Would Break 

Mr. Delay hits the trifecta:
A Texas grand jury on Monday indicted U.S. Rep. Tom DeLay on two new felony charges including money laundering, following a conspiracy indictment last week which forced him to step aside as the second-ranking Republican in the U.S. House of Representatives.

The new indictment accuses DeLay of money laundering and conspiracy to commit money laundering in a campaign finance scheme and greatly raises the legal stakes for the once-powerful Texan because it includes a potential punishment of life in prison if convicted . . . .

DeLay denounced the latest action as an "abomination of justice."
Whence this Vesuvian eruption of greed and hubris? Our psychopharmacological colleague Roger Gathman of Limited, Inc., can explain the lamentable rise of Mr. DeLay (and everything else that's happened since Ronald Reagan was elected president) in a single word: Mirapex!
