From Rule of Law to Mob Rule
Via Atrios, I actually clicked through and read the real quote because I figgured that Atrios was changing it to make an exagerated point, but no, here is our actual House Majority Leader:
Mr. DeLay: Not zealous. 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.
Wow. Just, wow.
