Asleep at the Wheel

What else could explain Tom DeLay saying such inane things?

"For all its faults, it is partisanship _ based on core principles _ that clarifies our debates, that prevents one party from straying too far from the mainstream and that constantly refreshes our politics with new ideas and new leaders," DeLay said.
Which is why when all the polls show that the "mainstream" is concerned with the war in Iraq and immigration issues, the Republicans felt it necessary to spend their time worrying about two men or women wanting to form a lifetime commitment. Yup, no straying from the mainstream.
A Democrat could be heard telling colleagues to walk out of the House chamber as DeLay criticized liberals who he said stand for "more government, more taxation, more control over people's lives and wallets." At least two dozen Democratic lawmakers rose and left.
Apparently DeLay missed the increase in outlays, even when you don't count the war, under the Republican executive and legislative branches, as well as all the pork that the GOP has tacked on to every bill imaginable. Now, I'm not saying that the Democrats are any better, just that Tom DeLay is either a liar or a fool.

Maybe both.
