Roger Ebert Celebrates Thanksgiving Rejoicing Tom DeLay's Conviction

Film critic Roger Ebert chose to celebrate Thanksgiving by rejoicing in former Congressman Tom DeLay's conviction on money laundering charges.

Ebert first graced his Twitter followers with the following:

Today let us give thanks for the right of trial by jury. Especially Tom Delay's jury. http://j.mp/fjU7Vf

The link goes to the New York Times article about DeLay's conviction.

A few hours later, Ebert tweeted:

"Earlier in the trial, DeLay had quipped that he wanted liberals on his jury because they were more empathetic." http://j.mp/i0jkaX

That link goes to Time's article about the conviction.

Makes you wonder what kind of deranged mind is actually getting pleasure from another human being's pain on Thanksgiving.

Shame on you, Roger.
