DeLay's Chickens Come Home to Roost

The Politico rightly notes that that not only is this the first time in almost seventy years that Texas' congressional delegation doesn't have lots of seniority and plum committee assignments, but that this is largely due to Tom DeLays's machinations to redistrict the state. Had DeLay not been greedy and gerrymandered the state, we would have three more great Democrats, like Martin Frost, as committee chairs. It will most likely take decades to rebuild that kind of accumulated seniority.
