    I hope Delay goes down fighting. He SHOULD be the face of the modern Republican party in 06. He's worked hard and should be honored this way.

    Here's to hoping Delay has dirt on Rove and the will and gumption to use it.

    This could turn out to be a better show than the Sopranos.

    Freedom does not march.

      but I fear that Rove so outclasses DeLay that any dirt the Bugman might possess would be dust in the wind when constrasted with the mudslide Rove would unleash if threatened.  Pardon the overuse of metaphor, but the more I study Rove the more Iago comes to mind - a superb tool of destruction, but one that needs guidance.  I too, see his hand in this, but as a ploy to scapegoat the Schiavo tragedy/fiasco and to further paint the Republicans as the party of "moral values" - unafraid to repute one of their own if need arises.  My prediction - the religious right will be "shocked, shocked" at DeLay's perfidy.
