This is why the DNC needed a new chair...

Dean says DeLay likely will go to jail

For years, the Democratic party has been unwilling to stand up to Republican strong-arm tactics - that seems to have all changed with Howard Dean in charge.

Dean offered a blistering review of the Republican Party — "I hate what the Republicans are doing to this country. I really do," he said — and used DeLay, R-Sugar Land, as an example of the "abuse of power" that he said now permeates Washington.
"This gentleman is not an ethical person, and he ought not to be leading Congress, period," Dean said on NBC's Meet the Press. "And it is endemic of what happens in Congress when one party controls everything."

I've got to completely agree with Dean - I hate what the current administration is doing to our country. I really do. America was meant for better.

When do you think the general public will start holding President Bush and the Republicans a little more accountable than they have?

Hopefully at the 2006 mid-term elections...

It is amazing how apathetic the general public has been to the events of the past 5 years. I saw a bumper-sticker recently that said:
"If you're not totally outraged,
You're not paying attention."

I thought that summed things up well.
