6. Thank you for making my day
I would rather be obnoxiousdrunk that obnoxious politician.
And he really, truly, is.

And I would like to say one thing, as a federal employee: DeLay IS IN FACT also a federal employee. He needs a big dose of humility. I won't hold my breath. Well, maybe I will, but not for that.

9. What a douchebag..."So many minority youths had volunteered..."?
Did they have a choice? I didn't know you had a choice when you got drafted.

I can't wait to watch this m-fer go down. I am going to enjoy every minute of it.

Send the Hammer to the Slammer!!

10. Women taking birth control
is the reason Columbine happened. This man makes no sense. How can anyone vote for someone who spews this nonsense? Are the citizens of Houston that dumb? I guess they are. :eyes:
