Tiny Kings and God's Voice

"Party Unfaithful" by Jeffrey Goldberg in The New Yorker makes for fascinating reading ... from which, come these:
Mickey Edwards, a former Republican congressman from Oklahoma .... is helping to lead an effort among some conservatives to curtail the President's power in such areas as warrantless wiretapping. "This Administration is beyond the pale in terms of arrogance and incompetence," he said. "This guy thinks he's a monarch, and that's scary as hell."

"God has spoken to me," [Tom DeLay] said. "I listen to God, and what I've heard is that I'm supposed to devote myself to rebuilding the conservative base of the Republican Party, and I think we shouldn't be underestimated."
The picture that emerges is of an imploding Republican Party, looking for guilty parties to blame. Among the "saviors" waiting to resurrect it ... Newt Gingrich, who, though he doesn't exactly claim God is speaking to him, obviously DOES hear voices and who pronounces Karl Rove's 2004 wedge campaign "maniacally dumb" for setting the GOP up for the ultimate failures of 2006.
