Wouldn't Tom DeLay Make a Great Villain in a James Bond Film? Just Call Him "Bushfinger."
A BUZZFLASH NEWS ANALYSIS
Before Tom DeLay became the official Anti-Christ of the Republican Party (or maybe he shares the position with Rove, Rumsfeld, Cheney and Bush), he was known as "Hot Tub Tom" when he served in the Texas legislature.
Actually, his partying ways never quite stopped. He took a junket of
lobbyists to Las Vegas a few years back and smoked a fine cigar as his
daughter (we are not making this up) soaked in a hot tub of champagne,
as the lobbyists poured the bubbly in.
Did we also tell you that DeLay, a former exterminator (whose business fell apart in a court house dispute with his partner), thinks that the toxic chemical Dioxin is GOOD for you?
We just had to empty out a few of our DeLay nuggets that we've stored up like chestnuts over the years. There are so many more, but so little time.
By the way his finest moment of pure hypocritical arrogance was perhaps when he was told to put out his cigar at a political function because of D.C. laws about smoking. He refused. The lowly American who had warned Satanic Tom reminded him that this was a government regulation and that he could not smoke inside the building. Taking a deep puff of smoke and blowing it back at the "peasant," Tom bellowed, "I am the government." Case closed, we guess.
The guy would make a good villain in a James Bond movie, wouldn't he? What we call him? Bushfinger?
A BUZZFLASH NEWS ANALYSIS
"It's so easy to be an unctuous Republican politician. You just wrap yourself in Christ like a piece of fried chicken in Crisco -- and voila, you are teflon coated!
Here is Tom DeLay, perhaps the most wicked -- and we mean wicked -- person to de facto run Congress in memory, and he claims that he's a disciple of Christ. Every wicked thing he did, he did for Christ, he will have you know.
Okay, as of today, BuzzFlash is a crusader for Christ.
Now, can we start our million-dollar gig on FOX TV tomorrow? And then get the GOP nomination for President in 2008. It doesn't take much more than claiming Christ is in your heart, larceny is in your head, and incompetence is in every bone of your body to get ahead in the Republican Party.
We're ready to enlist!
Oh well, not really. That much hypocrisy would just make us too guilt ridden and nauseous. That's why we are hopeless believers in truth, justice and the American way, in an age when the GOP thugs run the show and have the shredders working full-time on the Constitution."
