Why the delay on DeLay?

I wonder why Charles hasn't mentioned this.

The second-ranking Republican in the U.S. House of Representatives, Majority Leader Tom DeLay, was indicted on Wednesday on a felony campaign-finance charge and temporarily stepped down from his post.

The powerful Republican, nicknamed "The Hammer" for his reputation as a tough party enforcer, could face up to two years in prison if convicted on the charge handed up by the Travis County grand jury in the Texas state capital, Austin.

DeLay was indicted on a single conspiracy charge tied to illegal fund-raising activities by Texans for a Republican Majority, or TRMPAC, a political action committee he created, the Travis County District Attorney's office said.
It could be that he doesn't want to post anything that could damage the image of the Republican party that he happily shills for. Or it could be that Steyn, Simon, Hitchens, Hanson or Horowitz haven't written anything about it that Charles can cut and paste yet.
