Space Case

Tom DeLay. In space. That sounds awesome.

Unfortunately, though, all the Hammer's going to be doing is heading the appropriations committee for NASA. Maybe someone didn't get the memo, but this guy shouldn't be anywhere near money. Especially government money.

He's also gotten a spot on a Department of Justice subcommittee. Justice. Tom DeLay. Massive incongruence. What are these guys smoking??

  1. I'm not sure if "irony" is the right word for it, but I found this bit of the article interesting:

    DeLay was able to rejoin the powerful Appropriations panel he was a member until becoming majority leader in 2003 because of a vacancy created after the resignation of Randy "Duke" Cunningham, R-Calif. Cunningham pleaded guilty in November to charges relating to accepting $2.4 million in bribes for government business and other favors.
