Tom DeLay has said bye-bye to his fellow Texas Republicans. And he went out the way he came in and the way he served: As a hypocritical, partisan, phony.Where could such a plain spoken, down to earth, all American guy have his good-by dinner?
At Le Paradou, billed as "DC's finest contemporary French restaurant." Yup. A french restaurant for the king of French animus. And why not, since DeLay, the lover of children, used his children's charity for political purposes?
And the not-so-good Mr. DeLay had parting thoughts for us, as you might have expected. Get ready now, and keep the anti-emetics at hand: DeLay wants the Repubs to "stand on principle." At least that should be a little bit easier with DeLay and Cunningham gone, Ney going, etc., etc.
Not to mention that he also said (grab those anti-emetics) he was leaving on a positive note. And "We have been able to make history for 12 years and we'll do it again."
According to Rep. Joel Hefley, DeLay also told the gathering that Republicans "are going to keep the House."
Lets hope that was just the French food and champagne talking.
