Tom Delay bowed out of district race last week. He has blamed radical democrats for his situation. It couldn’t have the atmosphere of corruption that followed him like Peanuts’ Pigpen’s cloud. Nope. Democrats are to blame for his downfall.

Interestingly, on Washington Week, a question was asked about what is it about the House that leads to corruption? Over the last 20 years there have been Republican and Democratic House Leaders who have been caught with their hands in the cookie jar. My only comment is that it is an interesting question and follow the money. The House more than any other branch of government is responsible for the multi-trillion dollar budget. The Speaker of the House is the one person most responsible for getting the budget passed.
