Tom Delay Victim of “Liberal” Justice. Conservative Justice Fairer? Aren't Liberals Easy on Crime?

I just loved this line of reasoning from the Tom Delay:
"I was tried in the most liberal county in the state of Texas; indeed, in the United States," DeLay said on NBC's "Today" Show. "This is a political campaign" (even though) a jury found him guilty of money laundering and conspiracy to commit money laundering … plot to illegally funnel corporate money to Texas candidates in 2002.
A compliant CBS News played along, as if liberal justice is somehow different under actual law.
DeLay's trial was held in Travis County, which includes the state capital of Austin. The county does lean left.
Wow, Travis County leans left. Those weak kneed liberal softies on they're not? 

If only we could administer law differently, picking a county or state of your choice, depending on its politics…  

Here's Sam Seder with this bizarre Delay story:
