Tom DeLay Watch

TOM DELAY WATCH….Hey, the Long Beach airport has free WiFi access, at least for JetBlue customers anyway. That’s pretty nice. Who cares if they turned over a few records to the feds as long as they do cool stuff like that?

Hmmm, so what to blog about until my flight boards? Choices, choices….

I know, how about this from Tom DeLay yesterday:

[Tax relief] helps us in our deficit problem. We are getting more revenue now into the government than if we had not cut taxes.

I guess my only question at this point is this: do you think he really believes this stuff? Or does he know he’s just making it up? And which choice is scarier?

Of course, it goes without saying that Lou Dobbs didn’t bother to challenge him on this….

(Thanks to KR in comments for the pointer.)
