Like rats off a sinking elephant, more and more conservatives are abandoning scandal-ridden House Majority Leader Tom DeLay. As evidence of his crooked and reckless activities mount, the big-mouth, bullying Republican known as “The Hammer” is getting hammered himself. He claims all the uproar is nothing more than a liberal Democratic plot to get him and other conservatives but the right-wing knows a lost cause when it sees one as even Judicial Watch joined the growing numbers calling for him to step down. As one Republican insider told us this week, “DeLay’s goose is cooked. He is just too dumb and stubborn to realize he’s done.”
House Majority Leader Tom DeLay claims he’s sorry for the wild-eyed rhetoric he used the day Terri Schiavo died. Yeah, and there will be pork in the treetops by morning.
Politicians make it a habit to put their spouses and children on the payroll. The money can come from taxpayers, campaign donors or special interest groups. It’s not illegal under current laws and “ethics” rules but it sure don’t look right in the eyes of those who expect a little honesty and morality from their elected officials.
