Some explaining to do.
Atrios was on the Majority Report tonight (Wednesday) on Air America Radio, and when he went on the air at around 9:30pm, he led off with the Tom DeLay / Congressional Prayer Service story… as scooped yesterday by AmCop.
This story is getting big and it should be getting bigger.
Can we make enough noise out here in the blogosphere so that some "real" journalist will find the courage to write about it or at least ask DeLay to explain his comments?
Can we get constituents of DeLay’s (and other concerned citizens) to call or fax or email his office to ask him to explain why he chose to use scripture to taunt the flood victims in Asia?

Who knows, this thing could do for DeLay’s career what Trent Lott’s comments about Strom Thurmond a few years back did for his.
It seems like it’s never the actual criminal conduct (illegal fundraising, crooked redistricting, etc.) that gets these guys in trouble, but the stupid, arrogant, spur-of-the-moment mouthing off.
Readers, writers, we all should keep pushing this story to see how far it goes.
How can we do this?
