On DeLay: ''Dean was right on point''

"DeLay's going to be indicted; is there some reason to pretend he isn't going to be? Listen, they do this kind of crap every single day and you never hear them explaining themselves or apologizing. Barney Frank HAS to voice opposition to what Dean said, because he has to get on the floor and work with DeLay. But Dean's laying a floor for our electoral house in 2006 - and we're going to put Tom DeLay on a big stick and wave him around.

People don't like to hear it, but we're not going to start winning just by raising money and interest from the grassroots. We've also got to toughen up and realize this is a tough business. If you're a football fan, you'll know this analogy: Our party's been run by a bunch of Dan Reeves and Brian Bosworth types - they look big and imposing, but they get rolled by tougher coaches and players every time. Dean's our Lyle Alzado, Dick Butkus. He's Da Coach. He's going to say things that make us feel ooky sometimes, and Republicans will get their panties in a bunch because he was "rude", but most people hear this and know EXACTLY what he's talking about, and they're glad someone finally said it.

DeLay doesn't like it? Screw him. He's got a big mouthpiece, he can go ahead and fight back and quit crying about taking some of what he's dished out for the last 20 years. I think Dean was right on point, and has every right and reason to bring Tom DeLay into whatever speech he wants to."-Ray Minchew, Executive Director, Democracy for Washington.
