Easter Reflections on Tom Delay

March 27, 2005

In recent days, criticism has unfairly rained down on House majority leader Tom Delay for supposedly comparing himself to Jesus. As Delay put it in his own defense, "people hate the messenger. That's why they killed Christ."
On this Easter Sunday, it is worth noting that the similarities between Jesus and Tom Delay are striking:

  1. Nice, Jon. Any chance you could email that as an attachment? I'll have some shirts made, split it with ya. (just kidding, I have a fundraiser for local Dem Party, it would make a great prize) Be well. I'll give you my private email if you respond.

  2. Hey, this is a disgrace to all pest control technicians around the world. My father has worked in pest control since the age of 17 and he's got more integrity in his pinky than DeLay has in his entire body.

  3. Damn shame William Burroughs isn't alive anymore. Imagine what he would make of all this.

  4. Also:
    Jesus: Suffer the little children to come unto me.
    Delay: Let the brats suffer as long as I get a tax cut.

  5. Old "Dioxin-for-brains" Delay has done it again. Just when I think he has hit the wall with hypocrisy and cynicism, he tops himself. This time he, the Bush Brothers and old "Cat-killer" Frist have really done it. They have unleashed the Crazies. The Crazies are not as easily controlled as the Newsmedia and they will turn on you like a psychotic bulldog.

  6. I saw that Mel Gibson fax when someone linked to the image on the Schiavo site and pointed out Mel used the fax machine of "Dragon's Fish Restaurant" in LA to send it. So deeply moved by Terri's plight was he that he could bear to dispatch his personal assistant to the bar while, I assume, he enjoyed a fine cigar and talked up a project with Miramax.
    Thanks for the PDF.

  7. I shudder at the thought of some kind of cult forming around Tom DeLay. I picture one of those crazy, low-budget Satanist movies from the seventies. Yikes.

  8. Burroughs would have said, just as he did while alive that all politicians are "worthless, lying bastards without a single good intention among them."

  9. I learned today on NPR that DeLay, before he found Christ, was really quite a boozer indeed. The Republican Party is apparently dominated by two Texans who each spent too many years there marinating their brains in alcohol.

  10. Hey all:
    Tom is my hero.
    He is a true believer in Jesus Christ, my lord and savior.
    Death to all you liberals.
