Rep. Tom DeLay, the former House Republican leader whose tactics earned him the nickname "The Hammer," said Tuesday he will resign from Congress and drop out of his re-election race to protect his congressional seat from a Democratic victory.
"I refuse to allow liberal Democrats an opportunity to steal this seat with a negative personal campaign," says DeLay." [Oh really! He's quitting because of liberals and not for his own crimes and misdemeanors?!]
Well, it's good to hear that he's owning up to his own crimes and shortcomings. Still, he's leaving and that's a fine thing.
I'm figuring with the current number of Representatives currently fixed at 435, add 100 Senators to that and a certain executive branch - I figure if we can just get another 500 or so (I'll allow that there are a handful of good representatives out there - Go Kooch!) to step down, be removed or plain voted out, we'll be sitting pretty.
Let the wave begin!
