And By The Way . . .
If you want to get a better sense of who Tom DeLay is strumming up support from, one only need look at who spoke at the annual NRA convention before DeLay took the stage. Yes, it was none other than that has-been, 'can't even sell out a concert in my home state of Michigan' rock dinosaur Ted Nugent. Ted has become such a minor blip on the celebrity screen that he now desperately seeks attention from an audience that prepares themselves daily for the feared invasion by Canada and Mexico (they're organizing I tell ya).
And if anyone wants to know what fires up these supposed mainstream Americans, part of Ted's speech included this rant:
"Remember the Alamo! Shoot 'em! To show you how radical I am, I want carjackers dead. I want rapists dead. I want burglars dead. I want child molesters dead. I want the bad guys dead. No court case. No parole. No early release. I want 'em dead. Get a gun and when they attack you, shoot 'em."Just another proud supporter of God, Democracy and the Republican Party.
