With friends like these...

But [White House press secretary Scott] McClellan suggested that the relationship between Mr. Bush and Mr. DeLay, a fellow Texan, was more business than social. "Sure," Mr. McClellan said, when asked if the president considered Mr. DeLay a friend. He went on, "I think there are different levels of friendship with anybody." --The New York Times, April 14

"He was, what's the word I want?" Mr. DeLay said in an interview with The New York Times in 1999. "Passionate is too feminine, but he was gung-ho for his daddy. He was kind of oil-field trash--that's an endearing term, by the way..." --The New York Times, April 15
