Recently I told you that any chance Tom DeLay has of regaining the Majority Leader's post was to have his case in Texas close to some resolution in January -- before dissidents in the House GOP caucus could force new leadership elections.
That seemed very likely to happen when lawmakers came back to DC mid-January.
Of course one way to give The Hammer a bit more time is just not to let members of the House come back.
And that appears to be what they've decided to do.
Josh cites to this story in the subscription-only Roll Call, which reveals that the House will remain in recess until January 31, when it has to be opened for the Empty Flight Suit to lie and bluff his way through another SOTU address.
So, yeah, we've got a government to run and all, but let's keep our priorities straight.
