DeLay is OUT: American Democracy Might Now Have a Chance


Tom DeLay has finally been knocked out of Congressional Republican leadership — and he is accepting that reality.
This is excellent news.
From the New York Times:

In letters sent Saturday to fellow House Republicans and to Speaker J. Dennis Hastert, Mr. DeLay said he supported the call for an election for a new leader and was stepping aside to avoid becoming a political liability as Republicans battle to hold their majority.

This is something that deserves some celebration.
