Tom Delay Exterminated

Poor old Rick Scarborough at Vision America. His "hero" in Congress is going going gone. Good Riddance! Mainstream Republicans in Texas should get involved again in the GOP - and take back the party from these fundie right right wingers who call themselves "christian."
Tom Delay will go down in history as one of the most horrible legislators in the history of Congress. Go ahead Scarborough, stand by your man Tom Delay - and America laughs and says "you've just got to be kidding me, Rev. Rick" Delay aint no Saint, sir.

Not So Fast, Mr. DeLay

It looks as if Democrats will get to run against him after all.

AFEDERAL APPEALS court has ruled that former representative Tom DeLay (R-Tex.) must remain on the ballot as his party's congressional nominee in the 22nd District. Lawyers for the Texas Republican Party say they'll seek Supreme Court intervention, but -- given that a state court and two levels of federal courts have ruled against them -- it seems likely that Mr. DeLay will once again be the GOP standard-bearer in November. This would be a delicious irony and -- if Mr. DeLay were to lose -- a fitting coda to a career built on trying to manipulate rules to his political advantage.
