1. That didn't take long...
What, 6 minutes between DeLay's indictment and a replacement? Ya think they want to put some distance there?

20. Nah
With these people it's each to their own. When one criminal comes out they don't want anything to do with him until several years later (see Libby).

16. They are passing over Roy Blount because he looks like a thug.
They want a "pretty face". That may come back to haunt them. The rumors will explode about Dreier.

23. Drier is an outstanding liar.
If there were an Oscar for Best Liar in Politics he would win hands down.

24. Powerless puppet like Hastert.
My spider sense is tingling. I think they put Dreier in there temporarily as a do-nothing rubber stamp for DeLay ... like Hastert. If they had chosen Blunt, DeLay would have been out of a job.

This stinks to high heaven.

27. Link
GOP congressional officials said the plan was for DeLay to temporarily relinquish his leadership post and Speaker Dennis Hastert will recommend that Rep. David Dreier of California step into those duties.

But the house has to vote on it, I think.

28. Great! Dry drunk in the White House. Self-loathing gay man as maj. leader
If Frist has to step down, will they bring up Santorum, who is certifiably insane (and doesn't even live in the state he represents)?

When people say the GOP/Bushies are crumbling, I don't like to allow myself to hope. But boy oh boy ...
