In One Eye

The more the DeLay business drags on, the more similarities it has to the political demise of Connecticut's former governor.

Specifically, when crunch time finally came, the powers that be admitted that the misdeeds of the respective principals had so slowed the political process that attemptinjg to save them in some way would be counterproductive.

This is clearly the Republicans' position as one of their own admitted today that "the ethics committee deadlock ... was becoming a distraction for the party at a time when it is attempting to accomplish its legislative goals."

This sure does sound like the rationale Connecticut's Republicans advanced when they gave up on our former unctuous governor.
