I guess you CAN touch this

Former Republican Senator from Texas Tom DeLay was found guilty of money laundering today. "The Hammer" faces up to life in prison for this crime.

Does anyone think this will change anything in American politics or will it continue to be business as usual? Rhetorical question, I think we all know the answer to that one.

What we have in place is a form of legalized bribery. As long as money is considered speech then the rich will always have a stronger voice than the poor and will always have unfair leverage over our government.

Still it's always nice to see justice prevail, even if it won't change anything.
