How in the freaking hell?

Would somebody please tell me -- somebody in Houston, please -- somebody who actually lives and votes in his district --

How in the freaking hell Tom Delay could have 20,000 people vote for him AGAIN?

What is in your water, people?

(No, this isn't an invitation for everybody to pile on. I'm hoping somebody from Houston actually has an answer.)

I can't speak for people down here who actually voted for him, but there are these two things that might have contributed:

1) his district encompasses Johnson Space Center, and he's a vocal and active supporter of NASA and JSC;

2) this area is seriously messed up. Yates, DeLay, and that running-over-her-husband thing all happened right down here in this suburban part of Houston.

Good points.

What were the ads like? Did his challengers put up a good fight?

You are a woman of little imagination.

They can do many tacky things in Houston. And now it's full of New Orleans Refugees, people who voted for David Duke, fer gunness sake!

Um, are you sure that the refugees who filled the Astrodome and their friends voted for David Duke? I'm just saying.

But the way you and Erin go on. Running-over-the-husband and such are just the things that make a place colorful. It doesn't have to make people stupid, too, does it?

Again, I'm just saying.

Maybe it's all the fumes from the refineries ...

I honestly don't remember seeing ads for DeLay. (Delay. DElay. Not sure ...) I know there were were campaign signs out everywhere, but I think this was a case of his supporters urging fellow supporters to get on out and vote for him. I don't even remember many challenger ads, so it's no wonder that people who could be bothered to go vote in a primary were people who really want him to stay.

That explains a lot, if his opponents didn't even have visibility.

I hope the Dems can take him out, since the Repubs weren't able to handle it from within.
