Okay, so Juanita and I have some fessing up to do. We have been distracted this week. Nothing bad. Something kinda fun. But, I’m rarely at the computer this week because of this other deal.
So, imagine my shock when I read that The GOP blinked on the finance reform bill. Better yet, the Democrats got some cajones the size of Dallas.
Democrats had threatened to hold the Senate in session all night making their case that the Republicans were stalling legislation of importance to virtually every American. The Democrats also have been laying plans to make the legislation a major issue in midterm elections this summer and fall. The Republican retreat came one day after senior executives of Wall Street giant Goldman Sachs were denounced by lawmakers from both parties at a marathon Senate hearing.
And then as if that wasn’t enough, there’s this —-
The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals today upheld the money laundering indictments against James Ellis and John Colyandro in a political ethics case tied to former U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, R-Sugar Land.
DeLay was not directly involved in the appeal, but his trial had been postponed while the indictments against Colyandro and Ellis were on appeal.
Honey, Tom’s running out of gangplank. By the way, it was a 9-0 decision so I don’t want to hear any whining from sissy boy.
I’m pondering on getting distracted more often.
