Tom Delay's Guerilla War

A good guerilla fighter knows there is a time to fight and a time to run away. Tom Delay has again confounded his adversaries in the Democratic Party who were preparing for a long and dirty political campaign against the now former Congressman, known in the House as the “Hammer”. Instead Delay has “headed for the hills”, nursing his wounds and preparing to fight another day.

Compromise was once considered a dirty word, giving up one’s principles in order to satisfy others. Now it seems commonplace on Capitol Hill. With the departure of Tom Delay from Congress, our elected officials will now revert to form, performing for the cameras, jockeying for reelections, and betraying the American people who long for real change from the legislature, not watered down bills and endless partisan bickering.
