No, not Tom DeLay. Tom Tancredo.

A few years back, Rep. Tancredo, Colorado Republican, became the most outspoken member of Congress in opposition to President Bush 's amnesty proposal for millions of illegal aliens currently residing illegally in the United States. (The key word here, by the way, is "illegal. ") For his trouble, Tancredo says he was called a "traitor " by Bush adviser Karl Rove, and was warned to never again "darken the doorstep of the White House.''

Not that they ever actually had the ol ' "Welcome " mat out for him in the first place, but still. Tancredo is a reliable and consistent conservative Republican. His lifetime ACU Conservative Rating over six years in office is an astounding 98. A Republican like that isn 't welcome in a Republican White House? But a liberal Republican like Sen. Lincoln Chafee is? What 's wrong with this picture?
