Tom DeLay: Exterminator, Hammer...Blogger?

| Mon Dec. 11, 2006 4:47 PM EST

In the "careful what you wish for" department we find Tom DeLay's latest venture, his blog. Supposedly this launched on Friday, was quickly overwhelmed by negative comments, shut down, and then relaunched on Sunday, with the ability to post unregistered comments disabled. Raw Story has the blow-by-blow, but for more fun, check out the archived copy of those precious 75 minutes of America's uncensored reaction to Tom DeLay.

DeLay kicked off his blog with the bromide, "Over the course of my political life I have learned many things, one of which is that not all good ideas come from Washington, D.C.. In fact I think that most of the best ideas come from concerned citizens from all over the United States." Turns out that most of the "best ideas" from the blogosphere can't be reprinted in polite company but here's a smattering of the printable.

Didn't we already stick a fork in your ass and decide you're done?

To paraphrase you: You WERE the Federal Government...now you're a nothing.

The fact that you are trying to keep your name alive by starting a stupid blog is actually kind of pathetic and sad. Please just go away.

Everyone already assumes bloggers are unemployed losers... thanks for reinforcing that stereotype...

Go back to killing bugs, Tom. You did everything you could while in the House to steal money from the American people and channel it to your friends. You deserve jail time, not public discourse.
