hypocritus americanus: Tom DeLay

Hypocrites are such remarkable people: no matter how many times they have their covers yanked off them, they just keep on belching bull. The preachers who get caught in sex scandals, the politicians photographed with dancing girls (or guys), the upholders of moral values found with secret addictions—they may shut up for a little while, until the bad p.r. blows over, but then they're right back at it.

Which leads me to Tom DeLay, a fine example of hypocritus americanus:

Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

Democratic leaders are acting like traitors by opposing the Iraq war, and President Bush must answer with a toughened stance, former U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay said Monday.

U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi "are getting very, very close to treason," DeLay said in a meeting with the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

"We have people dying," he said. "Not just our soldiers, but innocent citizens dying in Iraq and Afghanistan at the hands of these evil people, and you have your elected leaders making these kinds of statements that embolden the enemy. It's unbelievable."

Reid said yesterday the Democratic-controlled Congress would push legislation within days requiring the withdrawal of U.S. combat troops from Iraq beginning Oct. 1, with a goal of completing the pullout six months later. He said Bush is in "a state of denial" over the war.

"Not just our soldiers, but innocent citizens dying in Iraq and Afghanistan at the hands of these evil people..."

My first thought was the "evil people" he was referring to were the Americans. I'm still not clear. However, it is the Americans that are the cause of all the death because of their illegal occupation.
Again, this is the "Laurel and Hardy Theory of History." Oliver Hardy does something outrageously stupid and then says to Stan Laurel, "Now, see what you made me do?"

It's not our fault, they started it—and besides, if they'd just welcome us into their countries, none of this would have happened. We're the Good Guys (tm)!
