Dismay with Tom Delay

Long a thorn in the side of Clinton, liberals, and logic, Tom Delay has made an official statement regarding court action over the Terry Schiavo case that defies morality as well. Is this a threat or a promise?

"Mrs. Schiavo's death is a moral poverty and a legal tragedy. This loss happened
because our legal system did not protect the people who need protection most,
and that will change. The time will come for the men responsible for this to
answer for their behavior
, but not today."

Does Congressman Delay really believe, based on his recent list of transgressions and accusations, that he is the one to sit in judgment of our court system, not to mention the travesty of crossing the separation-of-powers line?

"...a series of criminal investigations, court cases and ethical inquiries have turned what was once a potent collection of allies into potential liabilities. A half-dozen people connected to Mr. DeLay have come under official scrutiny. Others, like a group of Mr. DeLay's friends and advisers at Alexander Strategy Group, have drawn attention after a client financed an expensive South Korea trip, including Mr. DeLay, that has raised ethical questions. The problems of Mr. DeLay's associates have renewed criticism about his aggressive networking
and fund-raising, criticism that Mr. DeLay has long dismissed as partisan attacks."

Is anybody really paying attention to this man besides his decrying the issues of the politically opportune Schiavo case? Delay reprimanding the courts is like Jose Canseco telling a kid not to chew gum because it'll rot his teeth.
