Two weeks ago Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA) stated that he thinks House Majority leader Tom DeLay “has to come forward and lay out what he did and why he did it and let the people then judge for themselves.” Well, DeLay came forward somewhat by sending an e-mail to his supporters. However, instead of focusing on explaining “what he did and why he did it,” DeLay spent more time on:

What Others are doing:
Democrats and their Outside Front Groups are Colluding to Target DeLay
Texas Indictments: A Political D.A.’s Attempt to Criminalize Politics
The Texas Civil Trials are “Sour Grape” Attempts by Failed Candidates to Get Rich Quick and Use the Legal System to Undue the Will of the People.
The Texas Matters Are About Politics, Not DeLay

What he couldn’t possibly be expected to do:
No Member Should be Responsible for Deceptive Behavior by Outside Organizations

What he was gracious enough to do:
Changes to the Conference Rule Were Not Driven by Tom DeLay, but Tom DeLay did Personally Make the Request to Reinstate the Old Rule

What the Ethics Committee didn’t think he did:
Tom DeLay Has Never Been Found in Violation of Any Law by Anyone

And, of course,

What someone else did:
The Only Person Found by the Committee to Have Violated the Rules was Chris Bell
