...was his voice a little quavering in that lame NJ "editorial" about the Medicaid part d(ebacle)?
I don't know, but he does seem to be off his game. The "editorial" basically burns 11 column inches in order to give his constituents a web site address. That was not the voice of Michael Castle the masterful politician. That was more in the voice of a clueless "Barney Fife goes to Congress" Michael Castle.
So if he is off his game, what is contributing to it? Is it the fact that his support for George Bush is alienating Delaware's common sense voters? Or maybe it is that fact that GOP Watergate sex parties got his buddy Porter Goss fired?
Of course it could be because his GOP buddy, disgraced congressman Duke Cunningham is getting pressure to give up other members of the GOP
corruption caucus? Apparently, even in the slammer, Duke isn't cooperating. He's not willing to give up the really big fish, it seems.
Says Rick Gwin, regional head of the Defense Criminal Investigative Service, "This is much bigger and wider than just Randy 'Duke' Cunningham. All that has just not come out yet, but it won't be much longer and then you will know just how widespread this is."
In the end, I guess I really don't care why Castle is losing it - I'm just glad Castle has lost his mojo.
