Holy cow!

Tom DeLay has a blog.

From the About section at

The importance of the blogosphere in shaping and motivating the current conservative movement is unquestionable- not only has it served as an important tool in breaking through the liberal MSM clutter but it has helped to keep our elected officials true to principle.

This blog is meant to further the online discussion in the marketplace of ideas.

Dude! Guess what! We liberal bloggers feel the same way about our blogosphere: it's been an important tool in breaking through the illiberal MSM clutter.

I'm guessing that my ideas aren't going to be welcome in that there marketplace.

I did get a chuckle from this blurb about his latest project, G.A.I.N.:

Become an elite activist by applying to be apart [sic] of Tom DeLay's grassroots network.

Elite? Grassroots? Isn't the point of a grassroots movement that anybody can join? The unwashed, the untouchables, the rabble, the hoi polloi?

At least he's not lying about the elite part. You have to submit an application to join G.A.I.N., complete with references.

thanks, Timothy Noah and Slate
