Let's play "The Tom DeLay Kick 'Em When They're Down Game"!
From a Molly Ivins column <http://www.freepress.org/columns/display/1/2005/1111 >

<snip>

"This whole thing about not kicking someone when they are down is BS. Not only do you kick him -- you kick him until he passes out, then beat him over the head with a baseball bat, then roll him up in an old rug and throw him off a cliff into the pound(ing) surf below!!!!!" That gem was in a DeLay staff email about Clinton's impeachment.

1. Couldn't agree more, when it comes to politics...
But shoe is on the other hand this time, to mix my metaphors a bit :)

2. Damn. He's one of the meanest people on the planet.

Check out this story from the article:

"You don't want me as an enemy," DeLay to Jacqueline Blankenship, wife of a business partner who sued him. When the local Republican sheriff hired Ms. Blankenship, DeLay spent $75,000 to defeat him.

See this quote also:

"I can't afford you as a brother anymore," DeLay to his brother and lawyer Randy after Randy's lobbying had embarrassed him.

8. The column also has this statement by DeLay on the "leftwing conspiracy":
"God has brought to us Terri Schiavo to elevate the visibility of what's going on in America. ... This is exactly the issue that's going on in America of attacks against the conservative movement, against me and against many others. The point is, the other side has figured out how to win and defeat the conservative movement, and that is to go after people personally, charge them with frivolous charges and link that up with all these do-gooder organizations funded by George Soros -- and then get the national media on their side. The whole syndicate that they have going on right now is for one purpose and one purpose only, and that's to destroy the conservative movement. It's to destroy the conservative leaders. ... This is a huge nationwide concerted effort to destroy everything we believe in."


Ivins just added "Whew" after quoting that, which she called a "truly spectacular outburst."

And now he's given her so much more material to work with...
