Hey, DeLay don't let the door hit you on the way out

According to the New York Times:
WASHINGTON, April 3 — Representative Tom DeLay, the relentless Texan who helped lead House Republicans to power but became ensnared in a corruption scandal, has decided to leave Congress, House officials said Monday night.
Mr. DeLay, who abandoned his efforts to hold onto his position as majority leader earlier this year after the indictment of the lobbyist Jack Abramoff, a former ally, was seeking re-election as vindication. But he told selected colleagues that, facing the possibility of defeat, he had decided not to try to hold on to his House seat.


We salute you, with a finger in the air and a hand on our...well, y'know.

let us pause, and reflect upon the words of Mr. DeLay:

[q]"Sides are being chosen, and the future of man hangs in the balance! The enemies of virtue may be on the march, but they have not won, and if we put our trust in Christ, they never will ... It is for us then to do as our heroes have always done and put our faith in the perfect redeeming love of Jesus Christ."[/q]

I like this excerpt from last week.

Conservative leaders are crafting plans to launch a public campaign to defend House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-Texas).

The move follows a meeting last week among DeLay, Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.), the chief deputy majority whip, and nearly two dozen conservative leaders, including David Keene, chairman of the American Conservative Union; Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council; Morton Blackwell, president of the Leadership Institute; and Edwin Feulner, president of the Heritage Foundation.

"Any politician that hopes to have conservative support in the future better be in the forefront as we attack those who attack Tom DeLay," he said.

By Digsby:
"They claimed that Delay was the personification of conservatism and by God he is. He's a crook and a coward. All these pontificating rightwing "moral majority" gasbags backed him to the hilt.
That's your modern Republican Party for you."

Crook going down.

another great quote!

[q]"I said a little prayer before I actually did the fingerprint thing, and the picture," he said. "My prayer was basically: 'Let people see Christ through me. And let me smile.' "

First Ashcroft left, now DeLay leaves-now if we can just get more of these guys out of various government offices...

Can't say I'm disappointed with this news, either.
