Laying Into Delay - Dems Out for Blood
So it seems the Democrats, in their ongoing quest to nip at the heels of the Bush administration, the congressional Majority Party and all things republican, can smell blood. Tom Delay, the headstrong House Majority Leader who is only guilty of letting down his guard and doing the kind of things his congressional peers have done for centuries, is on the defensive.
Democrats are practically salivating after the Congressman for a slightly ill-considered remark he made upon the death of Terri Schiavo. Taking aim at judges who refused to order that her feeding tube be reinserted, he stated "The time will come for the men responsible for this to answer for their behavior." Okay, so how is this a threat of violence from a conservative, God-fearing politician?
Of course, the penultimate BUFFOON of congressional minority (Edward Kennedy, of course) ranted that DeLay "has threatened the judges." Claiming that federal judges are asking for $12 million to install new security measures, Kennedy adds, "as leaders in Congress incite violence." (Of course, Kennedy of all people should hesitate to bring up ANYONE’S bygone improprieties, lest his own murderous past be mentioned).
It is a tactic that the democrats are using in unconcealed frustration, as the threatened Republican "nuclear option" looms with the democratic counter-threat of stonewalling. They screamed for the ouster of Rumsfeld, Tenet, Cheney, Wolfowitz and other major players, and now have moved on to what they obviously consider to be lower-hanging fruit in Congress.
Hence, "The Party of NO" has earned another moniker..."The Party of LOW."
