Tom DeLay is a chicken

This morning Tom DeLay announced that he is resigning his seat in the House of Representatives. As the Democracy for America website pointed out, if he is innocent of all the ethics charges being levied against him, why would he feel the need to resign?

Congratulations to Democracy for America for all the hard work they did over the past year, work which helped lead to the downfall of one of America’s most corrupt Congressmen. Democracy for America is taking contributions today, with each contribution of $50 going to send DeLay a rubber chicken, to commemorate him being a big chicken and running away from the charges.
