Whispers in DeLay's Ear?

Tom DeLay has spoken at the NRA convention. Here is a bit of what he had to say:

"We certainly don't have to agree with those who seek to deny us our 2nd Amendment rights, but we do have to remember that while our opponents' policy initiatives may be bad, that doesn't mean our opponents are bad people."
Do you suppose that some one has shown him the results of the current phase of the culture wars and it is not positive for the Republican Party?

He seems to have toned down his "they hate baby Jesus" rhetoric.

We shall see how long it lasts.

I still remember Alan "Jesus hates Democrats" Keyes in Illinois. And the long running stupidity of the Republican Party in California until Arnie was able to do an end run around them.

It won't take long to find out if this change of heart was tactical or strategic.

Welcome Roger Simon readers.

Whoa, M Simon. Very few conservatives have ever approved of the far right. Da's way too wide a tarbrush there, m'friend!

Maybe Mr. Delay has converted to Islam...

Want to start a new rumor?

buddy,

It appears the Far Right are in positions of leadership in the Republican Party.

We get Alan Keyes forced down our throats in Illinois. After the Jack Ryan no sex sex scandal the far right gave us Alan Keyes instead of the guy who finished #2 in the Primary.

And then you have the far right choke hold on the California Party. So instead of making incremental gains in a liberal state they actually go backwards to the point where Dems are getting 80% or better of elected positions.

In any case I predicted the Republicans would let the power go to their heads.

I have not been disappointed. Sadly.

I said post election that the Rs needed to be guided by the RINOs. It would keep the coalition intact.

Evidently they didn't believe me.
