Santorum on Delay

Stolen from a post on dKos.

Cross-posted from The Stakeholder, the DCCC's blog.

Since DeLay and his allies declared their litmus test, and even before, we've been discussing how the White House would handle the DeLay situation. We've noted that DeLay's strategy was to hijack the religious right base and use it as a deterent to any Republicans, including Rove, who might want to knock him off. The strategy seemed to be working.

So if you're Rove, what do you do?

First, you leak and you leak. That we've seen. But what if that's not getting the job done, and DeLay remains as defiant as ever? While Rove walked away from the Schiavo case and the right wing base that was invested in it, DeLay stuck around, and thus the White House risks losing its base if it attacks him.

You've got to find a wingnut every bit as nuts as DeLay...
