Dem Chairman Howard Dean says that Senator Tom Delay should go to the hoosegow, reports the Associated Press.
"Tom DeLay is corrupt. No question about it," Dean said Friday, with much certainty and conviction, adding that Delay probably deserves to go to jail. Nevermind that Delay continues to deny any wrongdoing, and has not had his day in court yet.
"No question about it" -- isn't that nice? Now, bear in mind folks -- this from the same guy who said when running for president we couldn't positively conclude Osama Bin Laden was behind the 9/11 attacks, despite videotaped statements from Bin Laden himself boasting to the fact.
"I still have this old-fashioned notion that even with people like Osama, who is very likely to be found guilty, we should do our best not to, in positions of executive power, not to prejudge jury trials," Dean said in 2003.
So, apparently admitted mass-murderers deserve their day in court. U.S. Senators do not. Nice.
