You know the liberal media has gone too far when they start making up stories about conservative Republicans attacking House Speaker Tom "First, let's kill all the judges" DeLay. Why in today's ultra-liberal Washington Post, reporter Mike Allen, obviously a pseudonym, writes that even Republican Senator Rick Santorum has finally had it with Tom Delay.
Rick "what's wrong with Attilla?" Santorum is about as conservative as they come. To think that he'd attack DeLay is absurd. Here's a fake quote: DeLay needs to "lay out what he did and why he did it." Hmmm. Allen is pretending the quote is about DeLay's perfectly legitimate trips to important international hot spots like Bermuda, Aruba, a small chateaux on the Loire Valley...you know...places where stuff's happenin' and important people need to be seen.
BUT...look at the quote. Santorum never mentions trips--acid, mescaline, or otherwise. Maybe he was talking about what DeLay did to injure his ankle and why he was so stupid?
In the same story, Republican turncoat Chris Shays called DeLay "an absolute embarrassment to me and to the Republican party." Sure.
The Post's like a dog that's caught the rear fender of a bus. It's gonna gnaw that thing until it gets the fender for itself. In another story, New Jersey Senator Frank Lautenberg sent DeLay a letter saying the poor beleaguered Speaker may have broken federal laws when he said, "The time will come for the men responsible for this to answer for their behavior." Supposedly, it was about the Shiavo case. Personally, I don't think the speaker was calling on anyone to kill the judges.
