Christ For Congress!

From CNN:

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Rep. Tom DeLay will drop out of his re-election race, two Republican congressional sources told CNN on Monday.

DeLay told Time magazine Monday that he and his wife, Christine, had been prepared for an election battle, but that he decided Wednesday to spare his suburban Houston district the expected bitter campaign.

"This had become a referendum on me," he told the magazine. "So it's better for me to step aside and let it be a referendum on ideas, Republican values and what's important for this district."

Anoymous sources tell Codemorse that the Republicans will next approach Jesus Christ himself to spear-head the nomination. "Who better to promote real family values than the Only Son of God, Himself?" was the rhetorical question posed by one Republican staffer, who asked to remain nameless. Efforts to contact The Anointed One were met with silence, despite the prayerful efforts of several reporters.
