Delay’s Defiant Dinner

There’s been a lot of back-and-forth discussion in the news media and on the blogs about last week’s famous Tribute to Tom DeLay event. Some cynics have suggested that this kind of “tribute” is generally a sign that the tributee is about to get thrown to the sharks. But the intrepid Garance Franke-Ruta of The American Prospect did us all a favor by attending the dinner herself and providing a spin-free take on its meaning, and she’s quite sure the event represented a gesture of Conservative Movement solidarity with the Hammer, and implicitly a shot across the bow at any Republicans tempted to abandon him.
