Tom Delay: People Are Unemployed Because They Want To Be
Sam Stein – Sun Mar 7, 11:06 am ET
Former (Republican) House Majority Leader Tom Delay called Sen. Jim Bunning (R-Ky.) "brave" on Sunday for launching a one-man filibuster of unemployment benefits, arguing that they dissuaded people from going out and finding work.
And what better expert to expound upon the subject of human "bravery" than Tom "Bug Killer" DeLay. This is the guy who at the 1988 GOP Convention when asked by a reporter why neither he or Dan Quayle fought in Vietnam "bravely" replied --
"So many minority youths had volunteered…that there was literally no room for patriotic folks like myself."DeLay embodies your modern day conservative Republican -- a heartless, selfish, phony patriot ideologue whose pomposity is only upstaged by the stench of his own cowardice.
I realize I'm a liberal who is purportedly supposed to eschew feelings of hate towards other human beings -- but when it comes to people of DeLay's ilk -- I really do hate fuckers like him and I feel pretty good about it and will not apologize for it.
