Say Cheeze

A Texas judge on Thursday ordered Republican Rep. Tom DeLay to appear in court next month to face the charge that he conspired to funnel corporate money to state political campaigns.

The summons calls for DeLay to appear in the court in Austin on Oct. 21, court officials said.

DeLay's lawyers have said they do not want him to be handcuffed, photographed and fingerprinted when he appears in Austin.

U.S. Rep. Tom DeLay on Thursday turned himself in at the Harris County sheriff's bonding office, where he was photographed, fingerprinted and released on bond on state conspiracy and money laundering charges.

...

"What we're trying to avoid is Ronnie Earle having him taken down in handcuffs, and fingerprinted and photographed," DeGuerin said last month. "That's uncalled for, and I don't think that's going to happen."

This is former Senate Majority Leader Tom DeLay. Why is he smiling in his arrest photo -- a photo he and his lawyers fought hard to avoid? Could it be the endless accusations of corruption which lead to him being rebuked twice by his Republican colleagues? Could it be because of his money laundering? How about his conspiracy charges? Ahah, might it be the "liberal media"?

It is neither of these.

Tom DeLay is smiling because he just saved 15% on his car insurance by switching to Geico.

Yeah, while you're waiting for the hammer to
