    WASHINGTON, DC – Tom DeLay has announced he will be appearing on Dancing with the Stars. Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay has announced he will be competing on the 9th season of the popular dancing program. Many in Washington are in no way surprised. DeLay was House Majority Leader during George W Bush’s first term. He rose to national prominence for openly redistricting election zones to favor Republicans, and his role in the Terri Schiavo case. Lesser known is that during during his entire Washington career he remained an avid member of the amateur competitive dance circuit. While serving...

    Former House Majority Leader Tom Delay (R-Tex.) will be back in the spotlight this fall, but not because of political involvement. The conservative Texan will be a contestant on ABC's "Dancing With The Stars." ABC announced this season's cast today on Good Morning America. DeLay will join the likes of singer Macy Gray, former supermodel Kathy Ireland, former NFL star Michael Irvin, and Donny Osmond. This should be….weird.

    Now that Congress has recessed, and since the conventions aren’t for a couple of weeks, Thursday’s The Situation Room turned back to the "hot" issue of what many liberals are calling on congressional Democrats to do: arrest and lock-up Karl Rove for his failure to testify on the issue of the firing of U.S. attorneys in late 2006. CNN correspondent Jim Acosta, as part of a report on this possible move by the Democrats, conducted a search for the supposed jail inside the U.S. Capitol. He also addressed the little-used power of the legislature to arrest and try government officials...

    Is Congressman Murtha About To Become the New Tom DeLay? By Bill Pascoe | May 13, 2009 9:13 AM Is Rep. John P. "The P is for Power" Murtha about to become the new Tom DeLay? He will if Rep. Pete Sessions and the National Republican Congressional Committee have anything to say about it. DeLay, of course, became the face of Republican congressional corruption in the 2006 cycle. Though DeLay himself has never been convicted of anything -- and continues to maintain his innocence as federal and state prosecutions against him move forward at a glacial pace -- several...

SNIP Despite President Barack Obama's commitment to bipartisanship, Rogers says Speaker of House Nancy Pelosi (whom he described as "crazy," "mean as a snake" and "Tom DeLay in a skirt") and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid didn't get that memo. "They don't talk to us," he said. "They've got the vote, and they can do what they want." Rogers said to be fair Democrats are paying Republicans back...

    Who are you gonna believe — politicians and the press, or your lying eyes. So, Ted Stevens isn't guilty after all. Imagine that. His case was just tossed out of court for prosecutorial misconduct . . . after the 2008 election, when the charges cost him his seat in the U.S. Senate. Add Ted to the ever-growing number of exclusively Republican non-crooks who are frog-marched by partisan elements in the American justice system in time to ruin their electoral chances, only to see the actual charges vanish in a waft of political smoke once their seat is safely in the...

    Ronnie Earle's legacy as Travis County district attorney If Ronnie Earle were a fisherman, he might spend time talking about the ones that got away. Others certainly do. Earle, who officially vacated his post as Travis County district attorney on Thursday, might be remembered most for the failed prosecutions of some of the biggest names in Texas politics. Indeed, his short-term legacy will be influenced heavily by unfinished business. Yet to be resolved are indictments that caused former U.S. Rep. Tom DeLay — the no-compromise conservative firebrand — to step down. Then, of course, there are the unresolved Yogurt Shop...

    When it comes to fundraising, organization and ground game, we Republicans got whipped. Now, Republicans may criticize Sen. Barack Obama for breaking his promise to accept public funding and play by the established rules, but that doesn't take us too far. We shouldn't kid ourselves: Democrats breaking this precedent had nothing to do with their campaign-finance principles, and everything to do with the fact they could afford to. Mr. McCain could never have competed this fall without the federal funds and, in the end, Mr. Obama simply smothered McCain, outspending him in battleground states by three-to-one, with plenty left over...

    ABSTRACT: Two Houston-area congressmen under political siege likely face opposite fates in the Nov. 4 election, according to a poll conducted for the Houston Chronicle. U.S. Rep. Nick Lampson, D-Stafford, trailed Republican challenger Pete Olson by 17 percentage points early last week, according to the survey by Zogby International. The poll had a margin of error of plus or minus 5 percentage points. U.S. Rep. John Culberson, R-Houston, led Democratic challenger Michael Skelly more modestly, by 7 percentage points, with virtually the same margin of error. In both Republican-friendly districts, a key factor appeared to be the Democratic candidates' inability...
