Hammering Credit Cards into Swords.
Tom "The Hammer" DeLay, inexplicably, hands the MSM and the Dems yet another sword in the form of a lobbyist's credit card. Lazy, sloppy, and inattentive to the need to be more chaste than Caesar's wife after last year's ethics reprimand, we now find out that DeLay's congressional office permitted a lobbyist to arrange and front his St. Andrews golf and public policy junket.
It doesn't matter that ultimately the NCPPR may have appropriately reimbursed the lobbyists' the front money (not determined as of this morning's press) - it's incredibly, mindblowingly stupid to conduct your business as a Chief Congresscritter in a manner for allow such an impression to be formed. Stupid, stupid, stupid! (Plan 9 from Outer Space) You idiot. Security will escort you to the door; you have 15 minutes to clear out your desk as House Majority Leader.
