Too Much Focus on Delay

Last week, as the Tom Delay story started to heat up, I started to plan a story on Delay's connection to the uber-lobbying firm Alexander Strategy, and possibly to Erik Prince, the publicity-averse founder of Blackwater Security, one of the key mercenary companies handling the "private" side of the Iraq war.

Now I'm beginning to think that with Republicans looking ready to throw Delay under the bus, it is probably better for the Democrats to let the GOP go after Delay and for the Democratic Party to point out the fact that Delay is really the most egregious example (and an extremely egregious example he is, don't get me wrong) of the culture of corruption, cronyism, and hypocrisy that defines the modern Republican party.
