Out, ye pesky boil

I said it back in April: Tom Delay is the Republican Jim Wright, not just a skeezy weasel, but a sign of institutional rot at the heart of the congressional party.

Dr. Stoch administers a bare-cheeked butt whipping to the Washington Times on this matter. Who do they think they are fooling?

How many states ratified the the call for a Constitutional Convention to consider a Balanced Budget Amendment? It was in the high 20s, if memory serves. Are those votes still valid---could a couple of state legislatures sick to death of the fiscal insanity ratify the thing? Could this be a 27th Amendment issue, where you have a provision out there, just waiting to be revived? Sure a Constitutional Convention would be a zoo of epic proportions, but perhaps enough of one to scare straight both sides of the aisle in Congress. Are there any constitutional law experts out there?

Umm, I mean other than ones who are about to sit down and watch CSI?

Hey, there may have been some spanking going on, but we all had our pants on, so it should all still be legal and not "all the way gay."
