Early reaction to Tom DeLay's indictment in Texas from a reader of National Review Online's Corner, posted by NRO's Rich Lowry:
We really need to hammer home that no "federal case" has been made and there is no suggestion that federal laws....or even rules.....were broken in this matter. Just as with the hurricane response, there is a world of difference between the professionalism of those involved in the federal and state processes....
In other words, Republicans should say that this would count as a "real" indictment only if it came from someone competent, like, er, Brownie.
Yeah, that oughta work.
