The enemies of virtue are on the march!
Tom Delay's recent withdrawal from the 2006 campaign, and his impending resignation from Congress, takes the fun out of what would have been a riveting pageant of defeat. But he's still providing some laughs, thank GOD, as is evidenced in a The Nation article by Robert Scheer, posted today, entitled "Anti-Christian Conpirators Slay Delay," in which he quotes the absurd ex-speaker:
"We have been chosen to live as Christians at a time when our culture is being poisoned and our world is being threatened," thundered the Texan pest-control entrepreneur who rose to become one of America's most powerful politicians. "The enemies of virtue may be on the march, but they have not won."
Naturally, Republicans are all a-quiver with hopes that, with about a 5-month buffer between his slithering from the scene and the November elections, Democrats won't be able to use him as a blatant example to voters of why they deserve to win back the majority. But we know Delay and his pals didn't corner the market on corruption and scandal. Why, just today, the press secretary for the Department of Homeland Security was arrested for soliciting sex online from a 14 year-old girl. He even told her he worked for the DHS. See? Plenty of dumb moves and foul behavior left in the grand old party. The next 6 months might be fun to watch, or they might just give us heartburn.
