To put Delay's humble comments in perspective, let's use that oft-quoted litmus test: What Would Jesus Do?
Would Jesus strong-arm lobbyists to pay for his golfing trip to St. Andrew's in Scotland? Would Jesus let a lobbyist pay for him to stay at the Bethlehem -- I mean, London -- Four Seasons?
Would Jesus, were he to smoke, and were he to be smoking on federal property, and were he asked politely not to, then reply: "I am the federal government."
If DeLay and his pious pals had been around for the Sermon on the Mount, perhaps the most famous line about humility ever spoken would have been given a rewrite:
"Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth, unless the pushy hire Jack Abramoff at 750 shekels an hour; then the meek (and the Indians) are screwed."
Luckily, Jesus was able to stick to the original script.
