DeLay vs. Clinton: Two Ironies

Number One: Tom DeLay, who was the member of the House Republican leadership most forcefully pushing the impeachment of William Jefferson Clinton back in '98, is now resorting to a phrase popularized by Clinton to describe the motives of his enemies. From Fox News Sunday:

"The way you counter this politics of personal destruction is you go and you're aggressive and you move fast and do something..."

"The only way they think they can get us is to burn down that house with an ethical cloud over it, and so their only agenda is this kind of politics of personal destruction." (Emphasis added in both.)

Ahem. We have met the enemy and he is us?

Number Two: DeLay has now been indicted on charges of
money-laundering and conspiracy to commit money-laundering. The irony here, of course, is a bit more sublime: If Monica had actually taken the time to do some, uh, laundering of her own, history might have been very different.

Oh well, with any luck, the entire DeLay story will all come out in the wash.
