The tale of the bug-killing cockroach...

The fact that we are even still talking about Tom Delay as though it’s possible for thinking people to come down on either side of the question seriously worries me about the media and the public’s ability to absorb and analyze information.

Apparently, it takes more than being elected to congress to turn someone into a statesman whose greatest accomplishment up to that point was the ability to kill bugs. Tom Delay is the most morally corrupt politician to hit Washington since Huey P. Long, and nobody since Nixon has shown more open contempt for the public trust, to the point that the House Ethics Committee even had to change its rules to accommodate Delay’s behavior.

Delay has shown himself to be so self-aggrandizing, self-involved and ethically rotten to the core that I can’t believe that he doesn’t actually smell. He’s an embarrassment to me as a Texan, and he should be over. In the immortal words of Audrey II in Little Shop of Horrors, "He sho do look like plant food to me!"

Well, guess what? He isn't. The spitting, foaming wingnut alleged conservatives are already showing what they're made of. "I don't see any wavering of the support for the leader. I think a lot of members think he's taking arrows for all of us," said Rep. Roy Blunt, third-ranking among GOP leaders. Uh-huh...

And what about the sputtering threats some conservative leaders are issuing to their own rank and file? How about this plum, from Morton Blackwell, president of the scary conservative Leadership Institute:

“Any politician that hopes to have conservative support in the future better be in the forefront as we attack those who attack Tom DeLay.”

You know, I'm kind of glad so many of these freaks are hitching their wagon to Tom DeLay's star so blindly, because the media, and even Matt Drudge, seem to smell blood in the water, and as we know only too well, they love blood in the water, and they seldom care whose blood it is.
