DeLay to bow out on June 9

Well, I have been worried because Tom has been stalling about setting his resignation date. It is now official. Tom has a date to leave!!!

Letter to House speaker makes congressman's departure official

U.S. Rep. Tom DeLay announced Thursday that June 9 will be his last day in Congress
The Sugar Land Republican, who disclosed his intention to resign in April after being engulfed by legal problems in Austin and Washington, made his departure official in a letter to House Speaker Dennis Hastert, R-Ill.

"I have recently made the decision to pursue new opportunities to engage in the important cultural and political battles of our day from an arena outside of the U.S. House of Representatives," DeLay wrote, (and also because I am a crook and likely to spend time in prison for my crimes.)

"As a result, I am informing you of my intention to formally resign as the representative of the 22nd Congressional District of Texas to be effective at the close of business on June 9, 2006."

DeLay spokeswoman Shannon Flaherty said the timing gives him "the opportunity to work on a few of his priorities before leaving." (Like working out at the gym?)

Whoo-Hoo. Don't let the legislative door hit you on the way out.

One nasty animal for your neck of the woods gone. Let's hope you can reuse the same photo for Rove and a few others. Let 'em fly away Oh Lordie!

Good riddance to nasty filth. He's just loved around these parts...unless one is Lakota. If he wants a "cultural battle", he's about to get one from Indian Country.

By the way, what's up with that scab resting on top of those shoulders in this otherwise perfect picture?
