Let us give thanks at Thanksgiving that former U.S. House Majority Leader Tom “The Hammer” Delay is now a convicted criminal.

From the Houston Chronicle—
“After almost 19 hours of deliberations, a Travis County jury today convicted former U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay on felony charges of political money laundering. DeLay faces two to 20 years in prison on a conspiracy charge and five to 99 years or life on a money laundering charge. DeLay remains free on bail, with sentencing tentatively set for Dec. 20.”
To celebrate this verdict, Texas Liberal Panel of Experts members Cactus, Extinct and Hamburger Wearing An Astros’ Hat went out and bought themselves a bottle of whiskey. You see in the photo below that they also rustled up an old Tom DeLay bumper sticker.
Cactus does not drink very often. But tonight is a special occasion.
2010 has been a rough year in politics. However, it is a source of holiday cheer that Mr. DeLay has been convicted.
