Future Headlines - A Tom DeLay Trifecta
Today former House majority leader Tom DeLay was shot dead by Texas Rangers as he attempted to flee the state after his conviction on charges of criminal conspiracy. Sources close to the former representative said that Mr. DeLay was on his way to Virginia to begin his new life as a lobbyist for USPest, an association of pesticide producers.
Thanks to Blake at The Next Left for the inspiration and for reminding us that, in Texas, there are only three ways to withdraw from an election: Die, be convicted of a felony, or leave the district.
And Tommy can't lobby if he is convicted either..so his second plan is to become involved in religious organizations..which read between the lines means he will still lobby for the wingnut religious zealots.
Until he becomes a televangelizer.
Dusty, Pinkfem...I agree. With hair like that definitely a candidate for televangelism. ;-)
(Okay, I'm just giving you shit. Hilarious post.)
A sidekick for Rush? I think not. Clearly, the camera loves a man as patriotically pretty as Tom!
On that note, I hear The Today Show is looking for a host!
Blake, Neil, DeLay's gotta get out this somehow, right? I say, why not be sure and go for the three-fer.
Mother puss-bucket! A pardon?! Damn well better not happen. Wait a second...can the Kowboy Koward pardon someone for a state crime? (Speaking of DeLay here. Libby, Rove, Cheney...sure.)
