As announced via the Washington Post :
Rep. Tom DeLay (R-Tex.), a primary architect of the House Republican majority who became one of the most powerful and feared leaders in Washington, told House allies last night he will step down from the House rather than face a reelection fight that appears increasingly unwinnable.
Okay, everyone together now. “Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!!!!”
