Yes, Tom Delay apologized today in a press conference, not for what he said but for the way he said it:
“I said something in an inartful way, and I shouldn’t have said it that way, and I apologize for saying it that way.
But if you want a perfect insight into just how ignorant the man is of the constitution and of separation of powers, look no further than this interview in the Washington Times. Try this one on for size:
I blame Congress over the last 50 to 100 years for not standing up and taking its responsibility given to it by the Constitution. The reason the judiciary has been able to impose a separation of church and state that’s nowhere in the Constitution is that Congress didn’t stop them. The reason we had judicial review is because Congress didn’t stop them. The reason we had a right to privacy is because Congress didn’t stop them.
No Tom, the reason we have a separation of church and state is because the first amendment was designed specifically to create one. And the reason we have judicial review is because Article III was intended for precisely that purpose. How does someone get to be in the Congressional leadership without reading the Federalist Papers, for crying out loud? If his district doesn’t bounce this babbling bobblehead out of office in the next election, they truly have lost their minds.
