Q. Why is this man smiling?


A. So he'll look too good on T-Shirts.

That's got to be the best, or happiest, I've ever seen DeLay. Wow.

Update: Jury is out on whether we'll do T-Shirts. Probably not with that photo. We're not looking to start a Tom DeLay fan club, you know.

But something smells fishy to me. Is this the only mugshot? Did he turn himself into the Harris County Sheriff's office, or to Ft. Bend? Is there a profile shot of him too, or some identifying information cropped out of the photo?

The DeLay handlers must be pretty happy with this image, but let's review what this means:

1) It's a mug shot because he's been indicted for criminal conspiracy and money laundering, not a photo shoot at the local Sears portrait studio, and

2) With decision to do the booking today instead of at the same time as his appearance in court tomorrow, he's just made a one-day story a two-day story. Ooops.


  • He looks nervous to me!

  • Why is he smiling?

    'Cause his political career is now nearer to Jesus!

  • Why the smile?

    He just found out what a body cavity search really is.

  • Nothing's going to happen to Delay because Earle's full of it, doesn't have any list, and the court case is over.

    Bla bla bla bla....

    This is all the garbage we hear on the right.

    However smell this bullshit in another light and it doesn't hold up to any scrutiny yet again.

    Jack Kemp, who insists Earle is a know-nothing fool is actually a two time crook.

    Jack Kemp runs the Free Enterprise Fund.

    Jack Kemp smears Earle?

    But Jack Kemp is really a crook..

    Jack Kemp caught red-handed in the Oil for Food scam with Dick Cheney!!!

    A lawyer, no that's a total joke. And if only the "fine" Texas education system had this inf"er"mation they wouldn't even talk about Ronnie Earle and would keep their mouths shut.

    Jack Kemp is no expert on anything, he's a two bit crook.

    And also, they do have the lists and do have the evidence.

    Observe the below.

    TRMPAC & Tom Delay are guilty: If they did the crime, they pay the time.

    Reality is he's got no "sympathy" plea that can get him off like Kay Bailey did, and at the very least will resign from Congress. Especially once Jack Abramoff flips and turns.

    Lists of candidates & amounts that will be making the case in court

    Okay then, lets return to our regular scheduled broadcasting.

  • From the HousChron story:

    Fort Bend County Sheriff Milton Wright said DeGuerin had asked Wednesday if DeLay could come in and out of the sheriff's office unnoticed.

    Wright said he told DeGuerin that even if DeLay could come in through a back door to avoid the media, "he would have had to come out the front."

    Hmmm... kinda like cockroaches do, no?

  • Isn't he supposed to be holding a sign with a number on it and who arrested him?? I don't think this is a real mug shot. I thought it was pretty stupid to make it a two day deal too. Takes a brain I guess.

  • Where's the freakin' profile shot? And why isn't he holding up a purple finger? (nyuck!)

  • I'm smiling because I just took a dump in Ronnie Earl's car. Take that you pinko bitches!

  • Yep...
    That is a mug shot alright.

    I would've preferred the mugshot with the numbers. The way one can tell, is by the little text strip on the right hand side of the photo.

  • How come he didn't have to sit in lock up and wait to be processed out like every other criminal has to do?

  • "Why is he smiling?"

    Because he's an arogant jerk who is too ignorant and up his own a** to realize that he's SCREWED.

  • Because just under the picture he is giving America and our justice system the finger. As soon as his number and the finger are added to the t-shirt I will place an order.

  • He's smiling because, to save time, they're simultaneously doing the body cavity search.

    Btw, Tom DeLay, love your blog!

  • Where are the traditional backgrounds? Body height? Case number or charge or whatever it is? This looks like something his publicist handed out. Was he really even booked?
