Reign DeLay


Oh that Ben Stein.   A few days ago he had the nerve to oppose common wisdom by calmly explaining why the rising chorus demanding Tom DeLay's ouster is so off tune.

Today he adds two more solid reasons:  
The reasons the liberals and the MSM are after Tom DeLay are two:

He tells the truth and he is effective in promoting George Bush's agenda.

He told the truth about how we have an out of control court system. He told the truth about an unelected elite in black robes literally enacting a slow motion coup against the Constitutional authority of the Congress. He told the truth about the brutality and viciousness of the killing of the totally innocent Terri Schiavo —— killed, again, in a manner so cruel we would not let a serial child rapist and murderer be executed that way.

The truth is so revealing about the hideous anger and death wish of the pro—death elite in this country that DeLay simply cannot be allowed to keep saying it.

Second, he is effective. He gets the job done in redistricting Texas to take away the Democrat gerrymander and elect more Republicans to Congress. This mirrors the electoral preference of Texans, but it terrifies the other side, accustomed as it is to using the gerrymander to get more seats in Congress than it has popular votes in the nation. He gets the President's agenda through Congress. He does not suffer fools or hypocrites gladly.

The Democrats are so used to Republicans who would rather be pals with the Georgetown liberal smart set than actually go to the mat for the President that they have gone into shock, then attack mode against Tom DeLay.

He is a truth teller and a doer for the people's agenda. So he has to be intimidated and smeared and indicted by a political hatchet man prosecutor into oblivion —— unless the people he serves stand up for him.
Got that liberals?  Deal with it as calmly and as rationally as possible without resorting to name calling.  C'mon you can do it.
