Gregor SamsaTexan DeLay awoke one morning from uneasy dreams he found himself transformed in his bed into a gigantic insect. He was lying on his hard, as it were armor-plated, back and when he lifted his head a little he could see his domelike brown belly divided into stiff arched segments on top of which the bed quilt could hardly stay in place and was about to slide off completely. His numerous legs, which were pitifully thin compared to the rest of his bulk, waved helplessly before his eyes.
What has happened to me? he thought. It was no dream. His room, a regular human bedroom, only rather too small, lay quiet within its four familiar walls. Above the table on which
a collection of cloth samplesillicit funds and bribes were unpacked and spread out—Samsa was a traveling salesmancorrupt Repubican—hung the picture which he had recently cut out of an illustrated magazine and put into a pretty gilt frame. It showed a lady, with a fur hat on and a fur stole, sitting upright and holding out to the spectator a huge fur muff into which the whole of her forearm had vanished!Bush and he and all his pals, laughing while signing the pork laden energy bill.

Here are the ABC interviews:
RONNIE EARLE: The indictment describes a scheme whereby corporate money which cannot be given to candidates in Texas was sent to the Republican National Committee where it was exchanged for money raised from individuals.And what do I think of all this?
MICHAEL ROWLAND: The charges carry a penalty of up two years’ jail.
TOM DELAY: Just another day at the office.
MICHAEL ROWLAND: Tom DeLay insists he's done nothing wrong and says the charges are a form of political retribution by the Democrat District Attorney.
TOM DELAY: This is one of the weakest most baseless indictments in American history. It's a sham, and Mr Earle knows it.
BWAHAHAHA. Watergate was chump change compared to what these traitors and criminals have been doing. Next: war crime trials, right? Right!
Chins up, everyone! Someone upstairs has bestirred themselves on our behalf.
