Politics DeLay Wins First Round
Tom DeLay won his party’s nomination with 64% of the votes today. Sad, but not a huge surprise.
What I really want to point out, though, is the following quote, which perfectly illustrates what a fucking asshead this man is.
“I have always placed my faith in the voters, and today’s vote shows they have placed their full faith in me,” DeLay said in a statement. “Not only did they reject the politics of personal destruction, but they strongly rejected the candidates who used those Democrat tactics as their platform.”
And to the 10,005 people (with 14% percent reporting) in Texas who voted for this man, from the rest of us: Fuck you.
