Stupid Down in Texas

DeLay wins his primary. Not only do they shoot old men in the face down in Texas they elect people who are under indictment. Amazing. From The Washington Post:
DeLay -- under criminal indictment on a money-laundering charge; rebuked three
times by the House ethics committee; and linked to former GOP lobbyist Jack
Abramoff, who has pleaded guilty to political corruption charges -- faced his
toughest primary race in his 22-year congressional career.
Democrats have to share the stupid label as well. A known Bush pawn, Cuellar appears to have beat out Rodriguez for the Democratic seat for the House in the 28th District in Texas. Cuellar is a Republican posing as a Democrat because he can't win as a Republican in his district.

While voters might be able to shake the stupid label if they can oust DeLay in November, it's going to be tough for them to completely get away from it. Cuellar is pretty much guaranteed another trip to Washington as he has no Republican opposition in the fall and will face a Libertarian with a slim chance against him.

It looks like Texans will have to wear those great big L's on their foreheads for a while. (And, no, L isn't for love)
