tom-delay-congressman.jpgAnybody nicknamed "The Texas Hammer" might not be your first choice, Demo or Republican, to bring home to dinner. As seedy as Tom DeLay can be, it'll take a lot to out-smarm the latest efforts of Travis Co. D.A. Ronnie Earle to nail DeLay. This showdown could reduce The Battle of The Alamo to quilting bee status.

What will be the net effect of this classic standoff? It puts a huge emphasis on the partisan politics that are eroding this country's ability to govern itself while placing our state right in the middle of this jaundiced spotlight.

Watching Ann Coulter and The Nation magazine's Katrina vanden Heuvel square off on Larry King last eve was about as close to "Ultimate Fighter-Female Version" as I care to witness. Both amplifying this highly partisan news story to the point that I'm forced to wonder...Who wins?...Who loses?...Small hint...You won't find the state of Texas under that first column.
