Hartford Courant: Simmons and Johnson should join Shays' Rebellion

The Hartford Courant editorializes about Reps. Rob Simmons' and Nancy Johnson's response to their fellow delegation member, Rep. Chris Shays. The paper says Simmons and Johnson should join, not distance themselves from, Shays:

Like some House leaders before him, Mr. DeLay has grown recklessly audacious as he has accumulated power. His trips, ties to lobbyists and payments to relatives were bound to be scrutinized. He is becoming a liability to his party. Reps. Rob Simmons and Nancy Johnson of Connecticut should join their colleague Mr. Shays in demanding that the majority leader step down.


  • Nancy Johnson:

    "It's very important to allow this process to move forward unencumbered by partisan considerations."

    Yes, Nancy, too bad Republicans have already encumbered the process because of partisan considerations.

    Dana Rohrabacher:

    "I think that Chris Shays again has demonstrated he's totally out of touch with what the mainstream of the Republican members of Congress are feeling and that he is disloyal to the party and to people as individuals."

    At least you got the first part right, Dana. Unfortunately you miss the fact that Chris Shays actually cares about his party going down with Tom DeLay, and Shay is clearly demostrating that he's in touch with the mainstream of Americans.

    And you, Rush Limbaugh, what do you know about "decent and good and moral and upstanding"??? You are no Jesus; you are no savior; you are no God; but you sure do like to think you are, just like DeLay.
