Who said Republicans aren't any fun?

From that highly respected publication - Rollingstone Magazine

"After the revelations of the past few weeks, there is no longer any doubt that Rep. Tom DeLay is the most corrupt official in Washington -- which is saying a lot, given the ethical standards of Capitol Hill. The Republican majority leader, known as "The Hammer," has broken nearly every House ethics rule on the books in recent years, enjoying lavish trips paid for by corporate lobbyists and foreign agents. DeLay stayed at the luxurious Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel in Hawaii as a guest of the American Association of Airport Executives, who picked up the $52,000 tab for eight members of Congress. He went golfing in Scotland, Russia and South Korea with family members and aides, racking up $283,000 in expenses that were covered by a host of special interests, including Enron, AT&T and the Nuclear Energy Institute. His wife, Christine, and daughter Danni Ferro have received $500,000 from his campaign for their political work on his behalf -- including a late-night party for corporate donors at the Rio Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, where a lobbyist poured champagne over Danni's head while she was in a hot tub on the balcony of DeLay's suite. The majority leader -- a master at covering his tracks by laundering corporate gifts through seemingly innocuous groups like the National Center for Public Policy Research -- insists that his first-class jet-setting is undertaken solely for "educational" purposes. "




Sounds like good times had by all.....

Rubbish, Tom Delay is an outstanding moral, god-fearing man. Nothing short of a god.

No, no, no you don't have to just claim you are, for Kerry did that.

You have to push your religion into government then it excuses everything.

I'll just say that DeLay isn't one of my favorite Congressmen.

nothing is too expensive for a man who has Jesus whispering into his ears.

you *know* Jesus would be against the filibuster.

and for the privitziation of Social Security.

This guy might have Jesus whispering in his ears, but he isn't listening.

Then Connie Chung pokes her head in and Jesus is caught saying "She's a bitch."

No Kerry is a Catholic.

Maybe we should be careful about generalizations

I'm a Catholic and I've never stolen $ in my life

And politicians like De Lay certainly don't represent the best of what Christians can be about

Did you ever see that SNL skit with Garafalo as Newt's Mom and Farley as Newt? I do not remember who was playing Chung, but the skit was hilarious.
