Power Corrupts

Speaking of Tom DeLay, the Republicans voted in a GOP caucus this week to tweak their rules to protect the Majority leader in the case that he's indicted in Texas. Several of Delay's cronies in Texas have already been indicted, and the prosecuting DA may indeed have an axe to grind, but I doubt it, but even if it's found that Tom Delay is not criminally sleazy, it still looks like the Republicans are more interested in protecting their own, than upholding a higher standard. As always, Andrew Sullivan is keeping an eye on things, as are others in the blogosphere and in the MSM.
I really do hope that Tom Delay gets indicted and the GOP learns that having a majority doesn't mean they have carte blanche.
