The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Blowing hot and cold

Rep. Tom DeLay (R-TX) is the fellow who turned back the GOP's new ethics rules — well, some of those rules, anyway — which were widely seen as a Republican effort to preserve his job should he have been indicted.

Rep. Tom DeLay (R-TX) is the fellow who, at the Congressional Prayer Service this week, after a number of prayers on behalf of tsunami victims, decided this would be the perfect time to quote Matthew 7:

Everyone who listens to these words of mine, and acts on them, will be like a wise man, who built his house on a rock:

The rain fell, the floods came, and the winds blew, and buffeted the house, but it did not collapse; it has been set solidly on rock.

And everyone who listens to these words of mine, but does not act on them, will be like a fool who built his house on sand:

The rain fell, the floods came, and the winds blew, and buffeted the house, and it collapsed and was completely ruined.

"Shrewd" and "shortsighted" are evidently not mutually exclusive.

Well ya gotsta hand it to ole Tommy Boy ... he can sure talk outta both sides of his mouth ... AND sound mighty purty doing it. But it's ok, he's balanced out with that Islamic nuthead saying the tsunami was the gays fault. I mean what cajones these paragons of non virtue have. Their ilk has saddled us with way too much moral baggage but I predict both will be laughed at with the same level of disdain as dear old Father Coughlin of the only good commie is a dead commie (and they are everywhere ... especially your bedroom)persuasion.

Keep that flag flyin Tommie Boy and nuke the gay whales :)
