Tony Blankley on keeping DeLay

Blankley wrote one of the most no nonsense editorials I've read in ages on why the R's should not abandon DeLay. DeLay is not my favorite guy. Texas grates and our avuncular Hastert more my style, but Blankley just converted me to a DeLay backer.

But as to the couple of Republicans up for re-election in a difficult Northeast district and state who, in the name of their consciences, have said slightly rude things about the majority leader of their party, I can only quote that shrewd discerner of character, Oscar Wilde: "Conscience is but the name which cowardice Fleeing the battle scrawls upon its shield."
