The Hammer Becomes The Quitter

And as far as I’m concerned, it couldn’t happen to a more deserving guy. Tom Delay became the master of the politics of personal destruction, saying and doing anything, honest, dishonest, truthful, untruthful, to accomplish his goals. When Jesus said “all who draw the sword will die by the sword” (Matthew 26:52), He wasn’t offering a forewarning of divine judgement, but rather offering a commentary on human nature. Delay will rant and rave, and blame liberals for his downfall. He will be joined by fellow Republicans and conservative journalists and bloggers in this, and like so much of what he did and said throughout his career, it will be false. Delay may have fancied himself a fighter, but in the end there was no one in his corner. He has brought his career down on himself by his greed for power, and made many enemies and few friends along the way. If he brings down other Republicans with him, so much the better. They have become the moneychangers in the temple, and deserve to be thrown from power. There will be many who will say the Democrats are no better. That too will be wrong. Not all Republicans are bad. Not all Democrats are bad. It’s our job as educated voters to learn how to distinguish between the bad and the good, and if it takes more of these high-profile disgraces to force us to cast our votes more thoughtfully, so be it.

    Well put.

    I just hope that people take notice and try to clean up politics through their votes.
