Republican crook hounded out of office.

Rep. Tom DeLay, whose iron hold on the House Republicans melted as a lobbying corruption scandal engulfed the Capitol, told TIME that he will not seek reelection and will leave Congress within months. Taking defiant swipes at "the left" and the press, he said he feels "liberated" and vowed to pursue an aggressive speaking and organizing campaign aimed at promoting foster care, Republican candidates and a closer connection between religion and government.

Wow. I wish I would have heard sooner. I could have planned a proper celebration.

This is truly a reason for celebration for everyone who values honest government. The Bug Man was one of the biggest crooks to come down the pike and was a perverting and destructive force both in the House and in Texas. The guy was corrupt as they come, all while wearing religion on his sleeve.

Just how bad do you have to be when you're a top leader of the party in control of all three branches of government, you had the ethics committee stacked in your favor and changed the rules to try to specifically protect yourself, and you're still forced to step down?

Good riddance to bad garbage.

Anyone hoping for term limits in Congress would find no finer examples than Tom Delay and Cynthia McKinny---both currently in the media. Neither takes responsibility for their actions, exhibits shame, remorse or regrets. Instead, DeLay blames the evil liberals and McKinney blames whitey. Either the whitey defense or the evil liberal defense will resonate with partisans, but those of us who are proud members of the "Plague on Both Their Houses" Party, will see this as a call to "throw the bums out" and limit the damage they can do to the nation.
