New Poll Shows DeLay Falls Way Behind Lampson


The light at the end of the Texas District 22 tunnel is getting brighter and brighter each day. A new poll commissioned by the Houston Chronicle, and conducted Jan. 10-12, shows that embattled former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay is indeed quite beatable in his home district, and has fallen appreciably behind his Democratic challenger, former U.S. Congressman Nick Lampson. The poll found that if the general election were held today, Lampson would get 30% to DeLay's 22%.

"The numbers I saw were encouraging," Lampson said. "They show that the people of this district want a representative who will make headlines for the right reasons, like improving homeland security, fiscal discipline and education. There is a long time between now and Election Day, and we're going to continue working hard for every vote."

Lampson was one of several Congressmen who lost their seats as a result of DeLay's 2004 redistricting scheme. How fitting would a Lampson victory be next year? Go to www.Lampson.com and contribute to this all-important campaign.

    Support for hard core conservatives has always been thin except in the reddest of districts. But you can't just sit back and wait for them to melt down. You must do the time consuming work of grass roots organization, voter registration and organization. Identify 3-4 core issues, and work them. There is a chance to take back the Senate at the mid-term. But it's not going to be easy.....

    Don't get too excited, I lived in Sugarland, on Ravenscourt Drive. The people there are friendly to your face, but deeply ignorant, stupid, racist and armchair patriots. They think if they go to church every Sunday, put a yellow ribbon magnet on their car and dump their used oil down the sewer that they are great American patriots, destined to inherit the earth by decree of Jesus himself. There are obviously exceptions, but the culture is such that most revel in their ignorance and celebrate it as a virtue.

    ...and on the other end of Dist22, in Galveston county, Delay is dirt. He screwed us out of representation with his redistricting scheme, effectively throwing Lampson out of office. Now, his machinations are going to bite him in the but, senting him off to retirement.

    Delay is and always has been an obvious dirtbag. It is continuously amazing to see some of the people elected as our representatives.
