The Hammer Is Back

I got this from The Hill newsletter. Tom Delay is starting the rightwing version of Moveon.org. Delay is calling the group GAIN (Grassroots, Action, and Information Network.)


GAIN is a growing national network of conservative grassroots activists united for the common goal of restoring American government to its constitutional roots and advancing the conservative first principles of order, justice and freedom.


I don't recall Delay fighting for justice or freedom when he was House Speaker. Delay did help start the K Street Project.


Lobbyists were invited into DeLay's office and shown their place in "friendly" or "unfriendly" columns. ("If you want to play in our revolution," DeLay told The Washington Post, "you have to live by our rules.")


Goodbye revolution. K Street is rushing to hire Democrats now. Lobbyists aren't about ideology. They're about money.
