I'm intrigued by this new ad he's putting out, where he chides Republicans for spending "like Democrats", ignoring border security, and having ethical standards that are "a punch line for Jay Leno."
How will it play? There are definitely a lot of Republicans disenchanted with their Party right now, but it does violate Reagan's 11th Commandment. Especially the last one could be trouble with the base, because while many conservatives are upset "from the right" on spending and immigration, I feel there is a much higher propensity to view the ethics charges as trumped-up fictions of the left-wing media ("DeLay is a martyr!").
