this just in ...

CBS News reports:
Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, a Texan touched by a lobbying scandal that ensnared some of his former top aides and cost the congressman his leadership post, won't seek re-election to Congress, a Republican official said.
To say that I am shocked is an understatement. The ONLY thing I can imagine is that someone finally found the movie clip of DeLay in a compromising situation with a barnyard animal, and rather than face the possibility of this making its way to FOX "News", DeLay chose to resign.

Honestly, it would take something of that magnitude to force Hot Tub Tom (a former bug exterminator) to make such a move. I wonder if we'll ever know for sure?

Yeah, when I saw the report I turned to my donkey (they're better than wives, or so I've heard) and wondered aloud what juicy news was going to be coming in the next few days.
