DeLay Resorting To Armed Defense


In a scene reminiscent of Charlton Heston's "from my dead hands" proclamation, Tom DeLay has given up on support from his congressional district and is now pursuing armed backing from the NRA. In a speech given to the NRA, DeLay was quoted as saying, "When a man is in trouble or in a good fight, you want to have your friends around, preferably armed. So I feel really good."

It seems with the arrival of each new day, DeLay performs yet another act of desperation in his failing attempt to save his political life. As proof that he no longer garners strong support from those who elected him, The Peach supplies this quote from Patricia Baig: "He is an embarassment to our district. He doesn't represent his district and it is time for him to do the honorable thing and resign."

So Tom can rile up as many bible-thumping, rifle-toting maniacs as he wants. They won't get him votes and they won't be there when the truth of his political infidelities comes out.
