“Turn To The Left, Please”

Earle got his perp-walk.

"Now Ronnie Earle has the mugshot he wanted," DeGuerin said, referring to the Travis County district attorney who brought the charges [against former House Leader, Tom Delay]. …

DeGuerin said he and DeLay went to the sheriff's office in Houston because it was convenient and because "I wanted to avoid the circus."

"That's what Ronnie (Earle) wanted. He wanted a perp walk and we did not want to do it," the defense attorney said.

The mugshot is really the only interesting part, how Delay handled it (The Smoking Gun has a larger version.)

He has a wide, freshman-yearbook smile going on; suit and tie, shiny little lapel pin - actually a very good photo. He’s the insurance salesman from the corporate newsletter, the one who had the big month and won the trip to Tampa.

‘The funny’ is that everyone knows he’s really pissed as hell, having to suffer the indignity on a BS charge. Still, short-lived irony factor aside, you don’t want a ‘Tawny Kitaen’ angry/stupefied scowl following you all throughout history. The smile means this photo will eventually blend in with all the others of this politician. Good call.

Update: And if you were wondering, 'Hey, where are all the little numbers at the bottom?,' (y'know, that little touch that tips us off we're looking at an actual mugshot), CNN tells us Delay was smart enough to turn himself over to a county that recently stopped doing that.

Well played indeed, Mr. Delay.
