Salute to the Honorable Republican Of The Day


Cuddos to Representative Christopher Shays (R-CT) for speaking out against the Republican repeal of their own Gingrich-Revolution-era rule that would require Tom DeLay to step down as Speaker if he’s indicted for violating state campaign finance laws.

“This is a mistake,” said Representative Christopher Shays of Connecticut.

When the Republicans gained control of the House in the elections of 1994, “we were going to be different,” Mr. Shays said.

But “every time we start to water down what we did in ’94,” he said, “we are basically saying the revolution is losing its character.”
