Apologies to Ronnie Earle?

Looks as if that indictment against Tom DeLay wasn’t as weak as the GOP flacks made it out to be.

Now that the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals has denied Tom DeLay’s motion to dismiss the money-laundering charges against him, can we expect apologies from the amateur and professional GOP flacks who have been denigrating prosecutor Ronnie Earle’s competence and ethics?

No, I don’t think so, either. But a man can dream, can’t he?
