Delay Departs

Obviously, Delay's departure is a disappointment to me as a Democrat. But, as an American, I have to celebrate his exit. He's a corrupt, arrogant, sanctimonious cad. There is a small (very small) part of me that respects his political skills. But any admiration of his expertise is overwhelmed by the evil ends to which he applied these skills.

I'll never forget the day when I was working on the Hill that I encountered him close up and personal. I was walking with my employer, a senior member of the House. We were coming from a meeting of an ethics task force that had been considering limitations on the gift rules in Congress. You know, the more things change....

In any event, Delay came up to my boss and pleaded with him not to ban golf trips. "Please don't ban the golf trips!" he whined. A very prescient incident.

And now he quits Congress because he doesn't want the Democrats to "steal" his seat. That theft could only take place with the complicity of fifty plus one percent of his constituents. He apparently doesn't trust the people to make the right judgment in the next election. Or maybe he does.

Good riddance.
