It is hard not to feel a little schadenfreude at the martyrdom of Tom Delay and Bill Frist, cat torturer.

Some choice quotes from Delay, former exterminator and self-proclaimed "best weasel killer in Houston":
    "Allowing the Soviet Union to consolidate a communist stronghold on our mainland (only miles from our Texas border), vis-a-vis the Sandinistas, represents a major threat to our southern flank of security."
    --Letter to a Constituent 2-5-88.

    "The greenies have led us into the crisis in the Middle East... The rabid environmentalists felt it was more important to jeopardize the lives of our brave American servicemen than risk the death of a single snail darter."
    --Quoted in Washington Post 11-4-91.

    and this gem

    "Guns have little or nothing to do with juvenile violence. The causes of youth violence are working parents who put their kids into daycare, the teaching of evolution in the schools, and working mothers who take birth control pills."

But in the spirit of fairness and bipartisanship, I think we should all remember what Tom Delay has done for us

and say a little prayer for him.
