Obligatory DeLay post

Great post by Brendan Nyhan (fmr. Spinsanity guru) on the Hammer's consistent use of reasonable discourse and his laudable restraint in never "questioning the motives" of others:

Let's review a couple of examples. First, here's DeLay suggesting opponents of the war in Iraq don't want to protect the American people, CNN's "Inside Politics" (transcript), Sept. 25, 2002:

He [former Republican Congressmen Dick Armey, who questioned the war in Iraq] is not doing what others are doing that are questioning the
president's leadership, that are constantly throwing up hurdles to keep us from doing what we have to do to protect the American people: using the
false arguments, these constantly -- throwing up, Well, I have to have answers to this question, and when they get the answer, they come up with a new question. These are people that don't want to protect the American people. They don't see -- they will do anything, spend all the time and resources they can, to avoid confronting evil.

Well said.
