DeLay: Liberals ruin everything
Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay announced his resignation yesterday, and took the opportunity to attack liberals and blame them for...everything.
Said DeLay, "Had liberals not fought us tooth and nail over tax cuts and budget cuts and energy and Iraq and partial-birth abortion, those of us on this side of the aisle could only imagine all the additional things we could have accomplished." We can only assume that the "additional accomplishments" DeLay had in mind include overthrowing election laws and changing the Constitution to discriminate against homosexuals.
Additionally, DeLay claims that "If conservatives don't stand up to liberalism, no one will." Actually, what he really claims is, "If conservatives don't stand up to liber...liberalz...liberalism, no one will," but it would be petty to point out the fact that he's a terrible speaker, right? (For the record, he also uses Bush's incorrect pronunciation of "Iraq." But it would probably be petty to point that out, too.)
Apparently many liberal members of the house walked out during DeLay's speech. On the plus side, they'll be able to walk back in tomorrow--whereas DeLay is gone for good. Too bad.
