Show them the money

Four of Alabama's five Republican congressmen have chipped in to the legal defense fund for former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, R-Texas. All five, meanwhile, have received campaign donations from DeLay's political action committee over the years.

Actually, it's tough to find a GOP congressman who hasn't taken contributions from DeLay. Probably the most famous member of that short list is U.S. Rep. Tom Osborne, R-Neb., who won three national championships as Nebraska's head football coach.

Yeah, and I'm sure they all contributed freely, out of the goodness of their hearts. Fear had nothing to do with it.

Who knew -- I would give Osborne props for this one, but he still has demerits from the whole Lawrence Phillips thing. All he's done is put together a long history of phyiscal and sexual assault -- the latter (well, both) to his own girlfriend. A class coach wouldn't have kept him on the team.
