DeLay Takes a Page from Hilary

House Majority Leader Tom Delay has denied all wrongdoing according to The Washington Post:

In a message e-mailed to supporters in his suburban Houston district that was provided to The Washington Post yesterday, DeLay blamed the reports on Democrats, liberal groups and the "legion of Democrat-friendly press" who were trying to undermine Republican control of Congress. "It is abundantly clear that their fundamental strategy revolves around attacking me and working to tear down Republican leadership," he said.

Haven’t we heard something like that argument before? Sometime before President Clinton admitted wrongdoing in the Monica Lewinsky affair, didn’t Hilary say:

Look at the very people who are involved in this. They have popped up in other settings. The great story here for anybody willing to find it, write about it and explain it is this vast right-wing conspiracy that has been conspiring against my husband since the day he announced for president.

When the evidence is overwhelming, blame it on a vast conspiracy. We’ll see if the “legion of Democrat-friendly press” turns out to be any more of a defense than was the “vast right-wing conspiracy." Somehow, we doubt it.
