Rick Santorum and Chris Shays are both questioning Tom DeLay's leadership of the Republicans in the House. The controversy surrounding DeLay right now is a media-created crisis. And the last things Republicans should do is allow the Democrat-aiding media to set the agenda for them.
Republicans have this tendency to shoot their leaders. Take the adultery controversies of the 90s. Democrats rallied around Bill Clinton. What did Republicans do - serve both Newt Gingrich and Bob Livingston up on silver platters. Politics is a blood sport, and sometimes Republicans aren't very good at it.
