Tom DeLay, Revealed in His Tell-All, Tattle-Tale Book


delay.jpgAll this time, we’ve thought Tom “The Hammer” DeLay was a vicious partisan. Well, turns out he might just be vicious. As CNN reports, DeLay’s new book attacks even his conservative peers, and “[o]nly DeLay’s wife and daughter escape unscathed.” Gingrich is vain and “an ineffective speaker of the House.” Armey is “so blinded by ambition as to be useless to the cause.”

On the other hand, anyone who calls W. “compassionate, but … certainly no conservative,” lies far to the right of anything but crazed partisanship, so maybe it’s more accurate to say DeLay is a vicious partisan and just a dick.
