Has Tom DeLay's luck run out?

National Post: "He's known on Capitol Hill as the 'Meanest Man in Congress,' although nobody has ever been brave enough to call Tom DeLay that to his face.

For the past four years as majority leader in the House of Representatives, the squinty-eyed, pug-nosed Texan has wielded power like a club, punishing Republican colleagues who questioned his ethics and privately threatening Washington lobbyists who dared put Democrats on their payroll.

So fearful are Republicans that when Newsweek magazine profiled the 58-year-old congressional leader this week, not one GOP operative was willing to criticize DeLay on the record.

Not yet anyway, not until they are certain his latest legal woes will render him incapable of exacting revenge."
