Short post

I don't have a lot to say tonight. I found it ridiculous and hypocritical of the Republican Party to enact the rules change that will allow a party leader to keep their commitee leadersip if they happened to be indicted. This was done to protect Tom Delay who is under investigation for political corruption in the state of Texas. These rules were originally enacted in 1993 to get rid of Democrat, Dan Rostenkowski, who was under indictment and eventually served time for mail fraud. They accuse the Texas prosecuter of being blatantly political while they are being the same way and worse. Ronnie Earle, the Travis County, Texas Prosecuting Attorney, while he may be a registered Democrat, has prosecuted more Democrats than Republicans for political crimes. The Republicans, on the other hand, are simply trying to protect their empire.

The Iraq death toll is up to 1217, up 1 from yesterday. 96 Americans have died this month, making it the second deadliest month in this war's history after April 2004. My documentation project has brought me up to July 2003, in which 47 American soldiers lost their lives.
