A Bustle in Your Blog Row
A couple real-time morsels, from the ongoing conversation with Congressmen Hensarling and Wilson:
Jeb Hensarling (TX) on the delayed vote on reduction in discretionary spending: Given a narrow margin in the House and an only feigned commitment to fiscal discipline from the Democrats, the majority is still working on the ingredients for a 1:1 offset to absorb Katrina spending.
Joe Wilson (SC) on DeLay: in SC legislature, you are presumed innocent (and keep your leadership position) until proven otherwise. In Washington, that rule only appears to apply to one party.
Hensarling is troubled by the media grandstanding of the DA ("Something's pretty smelly back home in Texas.") and finds DeLay's plight to be a "liberal crusade" that required shopping 8 different grand juries to reach an indictment.
Hensarling on energy: Had Clinton not vetoed Anwar drilling in 1995, that oil production would now be coming online (Rep. Marsha Blackburn also made this point earlier today).
