The Bull-Moose directs me to some of the best news I've heard in a long time: Tom DeLay is getting nervous about his re-election prospects back home in Texas. DeLay's mid-term redistricting episode got five new Republicans into the House--but at the cost of making his own district substantially less secure. The local media has turned against him, and the Democratic challenger in 2004--relative unknown Richard Morrison--managed to hold him to only 55% of the vote. Since then, the stench of scandel has only grown around the good Representative, and national Democrats are beginning to eye the district carefully.
It appears even Texans know a rat when they see (or smell) one. Here's to hoping that the Exterminator goes back to zapping bugs down in Sugar Land.
