That Was Quick

Not so long ago, you would think that Junior and Tom DeLay were working hand in hand for the betterment of the country (or at least the GOP and her supporters). Now it appears that the President never though too highly of the bug man:
Even before DeLay's announcement that he would abdicate his leadership post, top Bush advisers tell TIME, the President's inner circle always treated DeLay as a necessary burden. He may have had an unmatched grip on the House and Washington lobbyists, but DeLay is not the kind of guy in background and temperament the President feels comfortable with. Of the former exterminator, a Republican close to the President's inner circle says, "They have always seen him as beneath them, more blue collar. He's seen as a useful servant, not someone you would want to vacation with."

That's loyalty for you!
