Tom DeLay's Dad Explains Why Tom's An Asshole

Oh, wait! He can't because he's dead! But the tragic events leading up to his right to die explains the "ass" part of it and the legal issues after his death explains the "hole" part of it.

ASS Tom's father was in a tragic accident that left him severely brain damaged. After twenty seven days Tom and the family made the decision not to prolong the inevitable and stopped all measures to try and save the DeLay patriarch. This has caused some stir among the left because Tom led the Almighty crusade to try and have Congress intervene in the case of Terri Schriavo, to err on the side of life even though he was faced to make the same decision with his father back in 1988. DeLay's aides have insisted that the two cases have nothing in common.

The situation faced by the congressman's family was entirely different than Terri Schiavo's," said a spokesman for the majority leader, who declined requests for an interview.

"The only thing keeping her alive is the food and water we all need to survive. His father was on a ventilator and other machines to sustain him," said Dan Allen, DeLay's press aide.

But the LA Times have been nice enough to point out a couple of similarities.

Both stricken patients were severely brain-damaged. Both were incapable of surviving without medical assistance. Both were said to have expressed a desire to be spared from being kept alive by artificial means. And neither of them had a living will.

HOLE After his fathers death Tom, the leading figure for tort reform on the Hill, sued Midcap Bearing Corp. of San Antonio and Lovejoy Inc. of Illinois, the distributor and maker of a coupling that the family said had failed and caused the tram to hurtle out of control. This is what the LA Times had to say about the case.

The case was resolved in 1993 with payment of an undisclosed sum, said to be about $250,000, according to sources familiar with the out-of-court settlement. DeLay signed over his share of any proceeds to his mother, said his aides.

Three years later, DeLay cosponsored a bill specifically designed to override state laws on product liability such as the one cited in his family's lawsuit. The legislation provided sweeping exemptions for product sellers.

Last September, he expressed less than warm sentiment for attorneys when he took the floor of the House to condemn trial lawyers who, he said, "get fat off the pain" of plaintiffs and off "the hard work" of defendants.

Talk about flip flopping on issues and ethics. If I didn't know any better I would think this was a far flung story dreamed up by the radical right to discredit John Kerry. Nope, its no other than the poster child for the silver-tongued devil that speaks righteous words but does devilish deeds and he's an asshole!

Great post. Thanks for mentioning my site.

The more we know about DeLay, the more apalled the public will become (hopefully).

Some how we have to keep this guy in the front. God he doesn't even have the balls to hold news conferences, he always send his aides out to speak for him.

I also love all these extreme christians that would love no more than to see Israel sink and they support DeLay. But if you look at his contributions from PAC's Pro-Israel PAC's have given upwards of $50,000. He's a campaign whore!

NO ETHICS!!! NEVER HAD THEM NEVER WILL!!!

Fantastic information! I never heard of that lawsuit the Grand Piece-of-Shit DeLay was involved in. What a miserable bag of wind and diarhea. Check out the LA Times Magazine (5-15-2005) story about the Austin District Attorney who is hunting DeLay for criminal campaign funding activities. It's really good. That fucking asshole is being investigated by the House, the Senate, and the Texas Legislature!
