DeLay slams 9th Circuit Court

It seems that redrawing the map that defines Texas isn't enough for ultraconservatiive Tom DeLay. Now he wants to outlaw judges as well. At the recent Harris County Republican Party Dinner, which has been rechristened the Ronald Reagan Dinner (apparently, Abraham Lincoln, who the dinner was previously named after, was too liberal), DeLay lambasted the 9th Circuit Appeals Court that covers seven western states as the "liberal, left-leaning, wacko 9th Circuit over in San Francisco". DeLay is apparently pushing legislation to break up the Circuit.

Besides, DeLay, who has been admonished for ethics violations over the past few years, needed to get a few more sound bites in, and Harris County was the place to do it. Even though he redrew his district to include several geographic areas that don't support his anal-retentive views, he still enjoys the support of legislators that he has browbeat into submission.


Trying to make some sense of it all
But I can see it makes no sense at all
It’s so hard to keep this mouth on my face
It keeps wandering ‘round all over the place
Clowns to the left of me
Jokers to the right
Here I am, stuck in the middle with you
