Amid this Monday swamp of owl starvation, Arizona rampage, and Dolores Park shooting, a silver lining shines through: Tom DeLay, former House majority leader during our country's darkest period, was sentenced to three years in jail today "for his role in a scheme to illegally funnel corporate money to Texas candidates in 2002."

For his part, DeLay doesn't see what he did wrong. According to AP, he "repeated his longstanding claims that the prosecution was politically motivated and that he never intended to break the law." That is to say, he thinks he was setup, see.

"I can't be remorseful for something I don't think I did," DeLay said. Aw.
