My two cents on the Brooks NYT piece.

David Brooks of the New York Times, as Rick posted a while ago, has an interesting piece on all the Abramoff/Scanlon scandals. But the strange thing is, he writes the piece about all the news swirling around DeLay without, strangely, mentioning DeLay's role. How can you write this story without DeLay? (WithoutDeLay.org, nice ring to it!) He even titles it "Master of Sleaze." But the kicker is the pull quote in the print edition: "The bucks stop here."

No, it doesn't. The buck stops with the leader of the most corrupt Congress in recent memory, Tom DeLay. Perhaps Mr. Brooks needs a diagram.

  • I don't mind that David Brooks' piece didn't mention Tom DeLay. Brooks is just taking "baby steps" toward breaking with DeLay and all he represents.
