Not only does he have the 5 Supremes if it gets that far but he has the huge super majority of Republicans in the Texas legislature who are clamoring for him to be given a full pardon. Since this trial was in a state court the governor, Rick Perry, could issue a pardon.

Wasn’t it in the movie, History of The World Part 1, that the lines “It’s good to be the king” were spoken. That’s how sure DeLay is to avoid serving a lick behind bars. Republicans always know how to take care of their own.

Nothing like some pocket lining lobbyists to ensure legislation and such rulings are in place to plead nonsense. The USA will be an official plutocracy and the Americans should understand what that means to them. (although a good number can’t even look up the words they toss around now …like socialism and fascism, heaven help you all)
