Paging Mr. De Mille!

Ronnie Earle is ready for his close-up. Can you imagine the outcry had Ken Starr agreed to star in a documentary ("The Full Monica," perhaps)?

Wow, two Sunset Strip references in less than a week! Does anyone else agree that Carol Burnett's version was one of the funniest things to have ever been shown on TV?

Keeping things light as each of the Republican leaders in our country prepare for their own private perp walks.

I of course meant Sunset Boulevard and not Sunset Strip.

I will defned my Carol Burnett claim to the death, if necessary.

I've got a Norma quote for DeLay:
"I'm still a big crook, It's the charges that got small."

Perhaps Tom can make a contribution to Mr. Earle's favorite cause and get off like some previously indicted companies did.

But Ronnie Earle didn’t issue the indictment against Tom DeLay. A grand jury did. And as it turns out, the jury foreman William Gibson is a former sheriff’s deputy who praises DeLay specifically for his “aggressiveness.” Via Billmon, we see that Gibson spoke out yesterday:

He did his duty and that bound him to look at Tom Delay as just another Texan accused of criminal conspiracy, [Gibson] said.

“I like his aggressiveness and everything, and I had nothing against the House majority man, but I felt that we had enough evidence, not only me, but the other grand jury members,” Gibson said.

The grand jury foreman also takes great exception to accusations that he and 11 other grand jury members followed the lead of Travis County District Attorney Ronnie Earle instead of following the evidence.

“It was not a rubber stamp deal. It was not an overnight deal. If we needed extra information, it was provided to us,” Gibson said. …

Gibson thinks there is enough evidence to convict Delay.

“We would not have handed down an indictment. We would have no-billed the man, if we didn’t feel there was sufficient evidence,” said Gibson.
