If you have a little time (it’s in the New Yorker so it will take a little time) you should read Jeffrey Goldberg’s piece, “Party Unfaithful.” It looks at the current unraveling of the GOP as seen through the eyes of three of its more tarnished knights in shining armor — Karl Rove, Newt Gingrich and Tom DeLay.
What I find fascinating about this article is how obvious it seems that out of the three, Gingrich, the moral and ethical misfit he is notwithstanding, is the only one who even begins to have a clue. We always knew that DeLay was just a two-bit enforcer while he was in office, but I’m beginning to wonder whether “Bush’s Brain” himself is also little more than a small minded thug, with all of the supposed political genius actually consisting of just a wheelbarrow full of cash, a willingness to play very dirty and a lot of luck — luck, God willing, that has finally run out.
