Defend Shays

The Republican attack machine is going after one of its own, Rep. Chris Shays of Connecticut, just because he spoke his mind and courageously called for Tom DeLay to step down.

Lots of Shays Rebellion news everywhere

One of us will have a round-up later this morning, but here's a great quote from the Houston Chronicle story covering Rep. Chris Shays' Rebellion against Tom DeLay:

"I have no comment on anything," Rep. Michael Castle, R-Del., said as he avoided questions about DeLay last week.

Later in the story, the Chron picks up our announcement, which we'll release with details later today:

Two GOP politicians distance themselves from DeLay

First, there's Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA), who said on ABC News this morning:

"I think [DeLay] has to come forward and lay out what he did and why he did it and let the people then judge for themselves," said Santorum, chairman of the Senate Republican Conference.
