DeLay the Socialist

By on 3.21.06 | 2:20PM

Okay, that headline is a bit of an exaggeration, but the truth is that there is NOTHING in the past several years to show that the House leadership, including the supposedly conservative Tom DeLay, had a fiscally conservative bone in any of their respective (and sometimes corpulent) bodies. Hastert and DeLay gave the spenders (in this case, not the Appropriators but the Transpo guys) cover because the leaders themselves had their snouts buried in the slop tray. Frankly, it's been this way since the Fall of 1998, when Gingrich himself ordered the conservatives to tank on spending in order to hold the RINOs in line on the rules concerning the impeachment inquiry. I repeat that more than half of the congressional GOP members are utterly worthless -- or worse. Frankly, the entire Beltway GOP establishment, at both "ends" of Pennsylvania Avenue, has gone native. A pox on all their houses and their Houses.
