Tom DeLay, More Pathetic By The Day

The conspiracy to tarnish Representative DeLay's reputation extends from Washington DC all the way to Hollywood. DeLay criticized a Wednesday episode of "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" today for what he called a "manipulation of [his] name" on the show. In the episode, a police officer investigating the murder of a federal judge opined that the police should put out an APB on "somebody in a Tom DeLay T-shirt." DeLay declared:

"I can only assume last night's slur was in response to comments I have made in the past about the need for Congress to closely monitor the federal judiciary, as prescribed in our constitutional system of checks and balances."

Yeah...but maybe it also had something to do with your threatening retribution against federal judges who failed to fall into line during your attempt to circumvent the constitutional system of checks and balances in the Terri Schiavo debacle. L&O producers have refused to apologize for the comment. They even had the gall to accuse DeLay of using this as an attempt to take the spotlight of his ethical quagmire. Where do they get off? It's not like DeLay has tried these tactics to deflect scrutiny from him before, oh wait, never mind.
