It's DeLovely, It's DeLawyer, It's DeLay...(clunk) 

Trying to channel the spirit of Cole Porter here, but it just doesn't work. Nothing with the word "DeLay" in it will scan worth a crap.

Oh yeah, he's lawyerin' up. BIG time.

House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, facing allegations of unethical conduct, has turned to Richmond lawyer and Republican activist Richard Cullen for legal help.

DeLay, R-Texas, recently retained Cullen and the firm where he is a partner, McGuireWoods LLP, a DeLay spokesman confirmed yesterday. Cullen is a former U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia and a former state attorney general, appointed by then-Gov. George Allen, now a U.S. senator.

Cullen will handle a wide range of matters for DeLay, including ones that may come before the House ethics committee, DeLay spokesman Dan Allen indicated in an e-mail. He declined to say why Cullen was selected. Cullen would not comment yesterday.

In 1987 [Cullen] was special counsel to then-U.S. Sen. Paul S. Trible Jr., R-Va., during the congressional investigation into the Iran-Contra arms-for-hostages controversy.
Gotta find my old cast album of "Anything Goes." For some reason "Blow, Gabriel, Blow" is playing pleasantly in my head right about now.
