THE PARTY OF THE COUNTRY CLUB

Somehow, I don’t think this, from Time, is exactly the message that George W. Bush wants to be sending to his base:

The President’s inner circle always treated DeLay as a necessary burden. He may have had an unmatched grip on the House and Washington lobbyists, but DeLay is not the kind of guyx97in background and temperamentx97the President feels comfortable with. Of the former exterminator, a Republican close to the President’s inner circle says, “They have always seen him as beneath them, more blue collar. He’s seen as a useful servant, not someone you would want to vacation with.”

Via Matt Yglesias and Michael Crowley, who are loving every minute of it. As they should.

You better believe it, says Anthony Lane.
