Oh this is to sweet to pass up. Seems as though the folks over at Powerline have are really spinning Delay:
Former Majority Leader Tom DeLay apparently has announced that he will not seek re-election in the fall. No indication, yet, of his reasons.
It’s too bad, I think. DeLay was an effective leader, albeit too liberal in recent years. It’s possible, of course, that he did something wrong along the way. But there is no evidence of that in the public domain; as I’ve often said, the politically-inspired prosection of DeLay by Travis County’s discredited DA, Ronnie Earle, is a bad joke. As far as we can tell at the moment, DeLay appears to be yet another victim of the Democrats’ politics of personal destruction–the only politics they know.
Did you catch that line. Here let me repeat it for you: “albeit too liberal in recent years”. Tom Delay is too liberal? Give me a fucking break. This has to be the funniest thing I have read today.
Note to John at Powerline – If you are going to start calling corrupt politicians “liberal” then there will be no conservatives left. Get the idea?
