“The demonization of Tom DeLay has been a sport in this town that has gone on for a long period of time, and clearly it is moving beyond the Beltway,” said House Rules Committee Chairman David Dreier (R-Calif.), who spends much of his workweek in meetings with DeLay. “We acknowledge that. But that doesn’t make it necessarily more successful. DeLay is a guy who, when people are attacking, he just puts his head down and charges right ahead.“

Tom DeLay sneaks around the Capitol like a fugitive these days, using back doors and basement passages to avoid television cameras.

I thought Democrats were the girlie men.
