Found Interesting articles on Delay over at...

the American Prospect Online.
Here is a excerpt from one of them by Michael Tomasky:

"Well, they’re the gummint now, and they have to be taken seriously. And in the obvious ways, of course, they are. But there’s one important way in which, oddly, they’re still not taken seriously enough: There remains an unwillingness to recognize just how reactionary their agenda is, and to call it what it is. It’s a strange thing, because it’s hardly as if those on the right have kept their agenda a secret. They’ve demonstrated many times that they have no patience for civic debate, and seek only to smash the opposition. They want virtually no government protection or regulation for regular people; they’ve passed virtually no major legislation that serves the public interest, and only legislation that serves corporate and far-right religious interests. In their desire to reintroduce the teaching of creationism in the schools, they want to go back to the 1920s; in their desire to merge state and church, their ideal America looks more like the 1720s. "

Three good articles: check them out at: The home page is: Current issue lists:
Tom Delay: Corrupt. Fanatical. Un-American. In Trouble.
