And that is what scares me. I have decided with all this talk about Tom Delay the Hammer of Truth should provide some quotes by our friend and political hero, God bless him.
“I AM the federal government.” — Tom DeLay, to the owner of Ruth’s Chris Steak House, after being told to put out his cigar because of federal government regulations banning smoking in the building, May 14, 2003
“So many minority youths had volunteered… that there was literally no room for patriotic folks like myself.” –Tom DeLay, explaining at the 1988 GOP convention why he and vice presidential nominee Dan Quayle did not fight in the Vietnam War.
“Now tell me the truth boys, is this kind of fun?” — Tom Delay, to three young hurricane evacuees from New Orleans at the Astrodome in Houston, Sept. 9, 2005.
