Josh Marshall on the fault lines in the GOP: "What I'm wondering is whether Chris Shays is a leading indicator in the judgment he seems to have made...I think his remarks yesterday and today, dropped like a big water balloon down on to the Sunday shows, reflects a judgment on his part that he can survive or DeLay can, but maybe not the both of them."
