Out damned DeLay: republicans turning on Boss Tom 

Clear signs over the weekend that Rep. party sentiment is turning against Tom DeLay.

Santorum (PA):
"I think he has to come forward and lay out what he did and why he did it and let the people then judge for themselves," Santorum said. "From everything I've heard … everything he's done was according to the law."
Shays (CT):
"Tom's conduct is hurting the Republican Party, is hurting this Republican majority, and it is hurting any Republican who is up for reelection...My party is going to have to decide whether we are going to continue to make excuses for Tom to the detriment of Republicans seeking election."
Forget for a moment that both these guys live in relatively moderate districts and are probably getting call after call with questions about DeLay, it's just nice to see a crack appear in the republican's Iron Curtain of party unity. Does Tom have enough hands to plug those cracks while defending himself?

Maybe soon they'll be eating their young just like the Dems.

About us:

This weblog is an ongoing, if periodic, effort by several friends to stay in touch, in reading material, and in ideas.

Lucky Luciano is a former Italian Stallion real estate hustler and Benedict Arnold CEO turned shady lawyer-to-be. He lives in Denver.

Ben is a Paramedic and would-be philantropist who lives in Denver. He knows everything about nothing.

Fuzzy Dunlop lives in Manhattan. He is more than capable of standing up to the stresses of a high crime urban environment.

Jess is a teacher. But have YOU given her an apple? No, you haven't. You should be ashamed of yourself. This crazy feminist currently rests her copy of Awakening in Jersey City.

Matt is a pariah, iconoclast, and professor of gambling living in Oakland.

Miguel Sanchez is not Lionel Hutz.

Daddy Brooklyn lives in Brooklyn. He hates Republicans, though he wouldn't mind being ensconced in the landed elite of New York City.

Paul just smoked my eyelids and punched my cigarette.

Ziggy Stardust has no past.
