You did not think that Delay would resign and that I would have nothing to say, did you?
I will not resort to name calling. It does no good to call the man the son of Satan. A) There are people a lot worse. 2) It does not make my argument better.
However, I will say that I am not surprised. One of the reasons that he is retiring is because he "is afraid that his re-election could get ugly." Am I the only person surprised by THAT? The man's nickname is the "Hammer." He has never backed down from a fight in his life. I can only imagine that his real fear is that he is going to get caught . . . and won't be able to get out of something.
I wrote my dissertation about campaign and party finance. It is the one thing in this world that I know a little something about. I know that Delay invented ways around campaign finance rules. He is a master of PACs and soft money. In fact, he is so good at it, that he wants to spend his "retirement" on organizations and helping politics get closer to religion. The organizations part does not surprise me. I told you that he is a master at manipulation and fundraising. As far as the church and state thing . . . well, ol' Tom would never let something like the constitution get in his way.
USAToday says: "He said the voters of his Houston-area district "deserve a campaign about the vital national issues that they care most about ... and not a campaign focused solely as a referendum on me."
Damn, Tom. I thought that was what elections are. Do I want to keep you in office or do I want to go with the other guy?
I am sure that we have not heard the last from dear ol' Tom. But here is hoping that he shuts up for awhile.
