DeLay's Conservatives Go Commie

Last night, 800 or so conservatives and lobbyists gathered together at the Capital Hilton in Washington, DC, to pay tribute to the scandal-scented Tom DeLay. The media accounts have noted that several prominent cons were MIA. Only about two dozen or so House Republicans bothered to show. (That's about one-tenth of DeLay's GOP colleagues.) House Speaker Denny Hastert sent a video message. (How warm and supportive!) According to The New York Times, conservative mastermind Grover Norquist, who earlier in the day told the paper that "the only way DeLay would be damaged is if his friends walked away from him," was not seen at the dinner and "seats at his table remained empty." When Representative Scott Garrett, a Republican from New Jersey, was called to the dais to speak, he was not present. (Was traffic that bad?) My favorite no-show was Representative David Dreier, the chairman of the powerful Rules Committee. His excuse: he had a previously scheduled event at the Nicaraguan embassy. Perhaps he really, really likes Central American food. [...] Read it all at the Huffington Post blog: http://tinyurl.com/ae6mk Let me see if I have this right. We are facing dangers to people IN THIS COUNTRY but we are taking all of the protection close to the people AWAY FROM THE PEOPLE... HUMMMM. We save $40 billion in 10 years. Close down the Iraq war and we save -- what was latest figure? -- over 700 billion IN ONE YEAR...
