Out of Sync And Out Of Excuses

Reported by Deborah - April 1, 2006

There were not many knowing glances and special moments of mirth today for The Beltway Boys, Mort Kondracke and Fred Barnes. Sadly, they were out of sync. Barnes was sulky with arms folded across his chest while Kondracke seemed empowered and a bit feisty. 4/01/06

During their Ups and Downs segment, Tom DeLay got a down arrow because his aide Tony Rudy pleaded guilty yesterday. Kondracke commented that DeLay was surrounded by "thieves and thugs" adding 'they do not do ethics training " in DeLay's office.

That was downright crazy talk for Mort and poor Fred was working up to a sulk so Mort acknowledged, "I know he's your hero..." Barnes had a sour puss and those crossed arms as he tried to find some sort of excuse or defense for DeLay. Finally he said in a mopey tone, " I agree, when one of your top aides is implicated, it doesn't look good."

Although Barnes wasn't quite ready to admit that DeLay is guilty, he did take a giant step today. The delusions will become harder to create as the spin material gets thinner and excuses run out. Then he'll need to hit rock bottom before he can accept the truth. By that time there will be some wonderful 12 step programs springing up near the Beltway to help guys like Fred come to grips with reality. Hopefully, the progams will be faith based and eligible for funding.
