Good Bye and Good Riddance

Tom DeLay is ethically deficient any way one puts it. I wonder whether he truly believes that he is innocent of any wrongdoing, as he claims. Conversely, maybe he has convinced himself that he “committed no wrongdoing,” after repeated denials that he has come to believe. Perhaps he simply has no qualms about being a lying, law breaking, and unethical bully.

Regardless of whether he violated the law, Rep. DeLay has played it fast and loose with the rules. He is despicable. He practiced a brand of divisive, partisan politics. The Houston Chronicle quoted Bob Stein, a Rice University political scientist, as saying that DeLay “shifted the game of politics from one of comity to one of ruling from an ironclad, ‘with-us-or-against-us’ philosophy.” I think Rep. DeLay has fallen prey to the politics of destruction he practiced.
