Dogged by Scandal and Corruption, DeLay Quits.
I don't have a whole lot to add to the DeLay business (what's to say?), but I was shocked by the coverage today. Every story I heard/saw treated this as only distantly related to his corruption. For example, so-smeared liberal mouthpieces:
- DeLay Decides to End Career in Congress (NYT)
- DeLay Announces Plans To Resign From House (WaPo)
- Facing Long Odds in Texas, DeLay Bows Out (NPR)
So anyway, the headline to this post is the one I'd have written. It's accurate and objective. These other headlines, and most of the stories, are examples of DeLay's success at spinning his own exit.
