Press Release: Democratic Talk Radio: Heroes & Villains of 2005

Democratic Talk Radio announced ties in both the heroes and villains categories of their annual awards foe 2005. Senator Russ Feingold and anti-war protester/Mom Cindy Sheehan tied for Heroes of the year. Texas Republican Congressman Tom Delay and Vice President Dick Cheney tied as Villains of the year according to Democratic Talk Radio hosts Stephen Crockett and Al Lawrence.

Senator Feingold was chosen for the key role he played in halting the Bush Administrations efforts to keep the worst abuses of the falsely-named Patriot Act in force. Feingold managed to protect American civil liberties almost single-handed in 2005.

Cindy Sheehan demonstrated the power of an individual citizen to change the course of public opinion and influence government policy armed only with truth and devotion to purpose. Sheehan exposed the insanity of Bush 's Iraq War policies. She is a great American and a citizen hero as clearly shown by the events of 2005!

Former Republican House Majority Leader Tom Delay was exposed in 2005 as the "kingpin of political corruption and abuse of public office. " Delay was instrumental in overturning traditional political processes by the seemingly illegal Texas Congressional Re-Districting Scheme that had given Republicans an apparent lock on the control of Congress. It was revealed that senior Bush appointees in the Justice Department overruled career lawyers who had found the Scheme illegal. Delay abused his office by using Homeland Security to track Democratic state legislators attempting to block his Scheme.

Tom Delay appears to be at the heart of the influence peddling, bribery and campaign money scandals that are swirling around the most powerful figures of the current Republican-dominated federal government in Congress and the White House. The ties between the Jack Abramoff operations and Tom Delay are vast and close. The entire operation has started to expose a real culture of corruption in the leadership circles of the Republican Party. Delay is the most highly visible government official connected to most of the most disgusting examples of government corruption and abuse of power in the history of the nation.

Vice President Dick Cheney became known as the driving force behind the illegal NSA wiretapping operation of American citizens by the Bush Administration. Cheney looks to be deeply involved in the illegal outing of the secret CIA agent Valerie Palme for partisan political reasons along with his Chief of Staff Scooter Libby. Cheney was exposed in 2005 for the deceptive PR campaign to falsely tie Saddam Hussein to the 9-11 terrorist attacks and WMD 's that did not exist.

Cheney seems to be pushing the Bush White House into claiming all types of near dictatorial powers and seemingly illegal behaviors. Democratic Talk Radio believes that the activities of Cheney as revealed in 2005 will lead to impeachment hearings for George W. Bush and Dick Cheney in 2006.
