Cushy Landing

Well, losing his position as #2 didn't seem to affect Delay too much. He has slipped right into a seat on the Appropriations Committee. Shouldn't that be the MIS-appropriations committee? What is it with Republicans? The man is under indictment -- shouldn't they perhaps be a bit more circumspect about putting him a position of power? I suppose it just doesn't matter to them.

And, even better:
DeLay... also claimed a seat on the subcommittee overseeing the Justice Department, which is currently investigating an influence-peddling scandal involving disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff and his dealings with lawmakers.
Fox watching the henhouse, anyone?
