The House Freedom Caucus is so far off to the right that you have to circle around left to see them.

Couple that with this week being the sixth anniversary of Tom DeLay being found guilty in Austin courtroom of money laundering and conspiracy.

And then add the cherry on top of recycling being a good thing, and you have

Juanita Jean followers will remember Buckham as the “preacher” who was DeLay’s bagman. He was the first to set up what would become SuperPacs. He and DeLay schemed their plan out of a DeeCee townhouse, raising “secret money” from the Russian oil executives to influence DeLay’s vote on including Russia in the IMF bailout.

Buckram used some of that money to pay for a trip to London for DeLay and his family, including golf at St. Andrews.

Buckham pimped his influence over DeLay with The Alexander Strategy Group, a lobbying firm. The money rolled in and then DeLay got his cut.

He’s baaaaaaaack.

He laid low for five years and is now ready to make a comeback to the world high finance politics.

DeLay is still free and trying to make a comeback. I’m sure it’s only a matter of time.

Old political bagmen never really go away, they just slither through time.
