Wise-asses unite to sink DeLay

Got this in an email

If you could say something -- in a big way -- to the people of Congressman Tom DeLay's district in Texas, what would it be? We're looking for a slogan -- something short, something memorable, and something that lets the people of his district know that it's time for him to go. We're buying billboards in the 22nd Congressional District, and if your slogan is selected, it will be part of Democracy for America's big splash in Tom DeLay's backyard. Suggest your Tom DeLay slogan here: http://www.democracyforamerica.com/slogan You have a lot of material to work with, thanks to Tom DeLay himself. Everything is fair game -- his abuse of power, his money-for-influence machine, his corporate shilling, his ethics rebukes, his foreign trips with lobbyists, his huge campaign payouts to family members, his bullying of fellow Congressmen. You can even use his more recent threatening of judges and his wild lashing out at critics. And remember, his nickname is "The Hammer" and he's a former exterminator -- those facts might come in handy as well. What message do you want to send? http://www.democracyforamerica.com/slogan With the folks at Democracy for Texas we're going to take your slogan and make a stand on DeLay's home turf -- where his political base erodes more and more every day. You were the first to put an ad on the air in his district last year, when everyone thought Tom DeLay was untouchable. Our efforts helped give him the scare of his political life and his lowest margin of victory ever. Now it's time to finish the job -- and have a little fun doing it. Thank you, Tom Hughes Executive Director Democracy for America P.S. -- Don't forget to suggest your slogan: http://www.democracyforamerica.com/slogan ---
