Tom DeLay declaring "victory" over profligate spending: "There is simply no fat left to cut in the federal budget."

Take it away, Andrew Sullivan:
Er, Mr DeLay, you have presided over the biggest explosion in pork and government spending in living memory.

But now it's his budget, and his constituents and interest groups who get to feed at the trough, and the sky is the limit.
