Republicans Could Turn Lemons into Lemonade

The Austin American Statesman is reporting that Tom DeLay could be indicted on conspiracy charges and would thus have to give up his leadership post as House Majority Leader. If this comes to pass, the Republicans could take this opportunity to make big strides back into the good graces of small government conservatives and turn an embarrassment into a victory. (Come to think of it, they could get back into the good graces of the average 'government shouldn't be irredeemably profligate, corrupt and irresponsible' American citizen.) This would require a bold and daring move that would demonstrate that they are completely in touch with their constituents, have analyzed their failings accurately and are eager to correct them. Of course this is why it won't happen, but life isn't as rewarding if you can't savor the possibilities, so here are the three top candidates that Republicans should choose from take DeLay's place should he go down:
  • Jeff Flake
  • Jeb Hensarling
  • Mike Pence

Choosing any one of these Generals of Operation Offset would signal to the vast majority of Americans that the majority party that presides over our Great Sausage Factory is coming to its senses.

UPDATE: CoyoteBlog and I are on the same wavelength.

UPDATE: OK, so DeLay is indicted. I see no evidence that the Roveian minions have swarmed my blog to discover the Lemonade recipe, so I am predicting lots of bitterness and puckering.

Check out Novak's op-ed in today's Washington Post. I think these guys read your lemonade recipe.
