DeLay of de Land

About Tom DeLay's comments on meeting with Republican senators regarding his ethics difficulties ...

Washington Post's Mike Allen writes:
"DeLay dismissed questions about his travel and his relationships with lobbyists as 'the Democratic agenda.'

Attendees said DeLay, in extremely brief remarks, told the senators that, if asked about his predicament, they should blame Democrats and their lack of an agenda."

Mr. DeLay: Are your ethics difficulties caused by the "Democratic agenda" (paragraph 1) or by the "Democrats and their lack of an agenda" (paragraph 2)?

Mr. DeLay: Aren't your ethics problems caused by Your actions?

If you can pull off this verbal sleight of hand, maybe this line will work too: "But, Officer, I wasn't speeding, the car next to me was going too slowly."
