Why the DeLay?

Embattled Tom DeLay still in power, back against the wall, is still cashing a government paycheck that we're all paying for. Why? Well, for starters, he's fired back with a mailer claiming that he's never done anything wrong. Before that, the the Republicans changed the rules in the House Ethics Committee to make it more difficult to start an investigation. I thought never having done anything wrong was the best way to stop an investigation. Then the White House, shamed by such visages of moral perfection as Trent Lott reminding them to actually speak up for the guy, steps forward. Puppet Master points out that DeLay is a good friend, and that the Democrats are attacking because they have no ideas. Well, time out but don't the Republicans own the White House, have majorities in the Senate and the House? What are they waiting for ideas from the Democrats for? Isn't this their chance to show everyone how to lead? Don't they hate Democratic ideas and ideals anyway? But now they want our ideas instead of attacking the admonished DeLay?

Point is - they can't lead, they don't know how to. They just know how to fight. And they fight to the death to win. Here's the problem, having won, they continue to fight to win the next point, to win next poll, to win next campaign contribution.

There's no one actually leading the country. The White House and senior leadership are leading a group of winners around by rings in their nose to continually divide, wedge and browbeat the public to keep winning at all costs. And all the time there is one murmur in their collective ears: stay in power, control the flow of money, control the message and keep winning.

Man oh man! You said it all right there.

That should be required reading for everyone in the country.
