It's a Start

Posted by Nicholas Beaudrot of Electoral Math

It's nice to know that the Republican Party has finally decided to throw DeLay overboard, but getting rid of DeLay the man does nothing to get rid of DeLay the idea. Roy Blunt (R-MO), Eric Cantor (R-VA), and John Boehner (R-OH) will most likely do nothing to stem the outsourcing of all "policy-making" functions of government to lobbying shops loyal to the Republican Party. At the moment, the only hope for reality-based Republican leadership lies in Zach Wamp's (R-TN) quixotic campaign for Majority Whip, which is not exactly a pleasant situation to be in.

Given that it was Delay the idea that got Delay the man thrown overboard, the idea is likely to lose popularity as well. Whether it is Blount or someone else, it will be toned down but not altogether discarded. That would be unRepublican.

Careful, quietstorm: Roy Blunt is the interim Majority Leader. Roy Blount is a Southern Comedian. Who is, you know, funny, and not crazy.

I don't think there are any guarantees that DeLayism will be toned down without DeLay. As someone wrote, DeLay's only sin was that he got caught. There is nothing a priori to prevent the next batch of Republican leaders from working harder at getting caught.

The only thing that can force change is new leadership which simply decides certain types of policy auction are out of bounds, or continued failings such that the cost of avoiding getting caught becomes greater than the benefit. Given that the benefit runs in the seven to ten figure range for some groups that do business with the government, it's going to take a long time before the costs outweigh the benefits.

The risk-reward balance for this sort of naked corruption has changed, at least for the time being. Maybe Blunt will only work harder to be more discrete but that itself will dampen Delayism. Seven to ten zeros seems alot to pass up but Delay may well have lost as much from the current scandal. In time, of course, the past is forgotten and old behaviors reemerge.
