Tom DeLay: Breaking News in Brazos County TX

Just got an email from Juanita down in Brazos County, Texas, alerting me of this breaking news. Go to: Juanita's The World's Most Dangerous Beauty Salon, Inc. She will be posting photos soon.

Tom DeLay's campaign and a member of the State Republican Executive Committee called for volunteers to meet on the first floor of the parking garage and "wreck" Lampson's press conference. (Nick Lampson is the Democratic contender in Delay's district.)

One elderly Democratic woman was slightly injured when she was assaulted by a DeLay protester. The DeLay supporter first hit her in the face with a sign and then grabbed her hat and tried to pull it down over her eyes.

Think about this: Your Congressman asked his supporters to go out and assault old women. Okay, "wreck" them.

But that's all right. It's all right. They're just helping prove what a stone-cold hypocrite DeLay and his supporters are. One day DeLay laments the "polarization" in the district and how horrible it is. The next day, he calls a hit.

This reads like a scene out of The Sopranos.

"Just when you think your out... They pull you back in!..."

Nice find, Glenda!

Wreck indeed!

The ladies should file charges, get before cameras and raise hell.

He's got some stinkin' karma coming his way. You just know he does!

Glenda, thanks for the link to the Lampson "protest." Dirty tricks exposed. Good for Juanita to bring it to our attention. I love that site -- she's so funny and so biting that I can't help but laugh out loud and roll on the floor!

Sorry I can't make it to Crawford, Texas. But, I do spend a lot of time -- way too much -- at Crawford's List. Does that count?

Absolutely, eProf2, we all contribute in our own way :)
Thanks for all you do!
I understand that many cannot come for good reasons, just want to encourage those who can.

I don't believe it. Has this been confirmed?

There are pictures on Juanita's website, Go look.

Wreak-um, Wrack-em, Wreck-em
Send them all to Helen ...
(Thomas, cuz Bush's recent verbal abuse of this fine old journalist is the inspiration for this latest call to wreck 'em). PS, great scoop, I followed you here from Rory & Kathleen's. Looks like you're right in the heart of the action. D.K.

Those pics are convincing... can American politics get any more bizarre?

Unbefuckinglievable! When you can't win on your platform, destroy the guy who can. Is this legal?

Rednecks do crap like this! There is no shame anymore...they are following the example that the administration has given them for the last 5 years. No holes barred when it comes to ones actions. The conservatives are acting like Gollum from the LOTR. Creeps! I hope she gets to charge them...that might keep people in their places if they knew they'd get put in the pokey!

Geez, Glenda! Politics is like reality television...or Jerry Springer.

Oh, did you hear? Now I'm supposedly the naked showering girl Carrie Oakey too. How will you ever keep track of all of my secret spy-like activisites and all of my antics????

lew, Last I heard assault is not legal even in Texas.

I saw Juanita's website about a month ago and we started emailing back and forth. I believe her.

Not only that, Tom DeLay is trying to get a law passed so that he can illegally get another Republican to run in his place! Can you believe that? Juanita is a great lady. She broke the news when he appeal his concealed gun permit when it was revoked after he was indicted.
Three days later, a piece on her story showed up on the Daily Show.

Now here is something else from the Twilight Zone. Yesterday I posted a short piece on Tom Delay over at the Blue Republic, asking "What is Tom Delay going to Do now, beside beating up on old ladies?" Freaky?

Lily,

You're that Carrie girl? I thought I was Carrie. Wait, too many alter egos gets me confused. The Mother of God and Glenda are enough for any woman.

Sounds like a repeat of 2000, when Tom sent his goons down to Florida to harass and stop the recount.

What a guy, who has old woman beat up and shoved. I guess I won't have to be so sorry when he meets up with Spike while in prison.

Earl, EXACTLY !!! And one of those goons was John Bolton. Who could forget those "angry citizens" protesting a vote recount? D.K.

All this makes me want to believe in that there is some balance in the universe that will take care of people like him, but (sigh) I think we are the ones who must do the work of creating change.

If the Sopranos weren't fictional they could sue you comparing them to these low lifes.

 
At 4:28 PM, Blogger Peacechick Mary said...

Good God almighty. This is ugly. Incredible and credible at the same time. These goons just don't have a good thing to say or do and so they attack those who do. Sickos. I hope charges are filed.

If this were the other way 'round there would definitely be cries of terrorism ... what scum ... hopefully a prosecutor with some integrity will take hold of this and nail everybody ... including those who incited the violence ... thugs for a thug ... wow ... these people are pathetic ,.. that's the quality of the morons who still support the likes of Bush and Delay ...

 
At 5:27 PM, Blogger glenda said...

Pekka, please do not lurk in the shadows, come into the light and show yourself. It's creepy, dear.

 
At 5:48 PM, Anonymous Pekka said...

Glenda, please, forgive me my inexcusable behaviour! I wish not to spook you any longer.

I am a graying, but extremely handsome(!), Finnish fellow, reciding in the Northern Canada for a year or so. I am left of the centre in my political views, but I take pride of not being close minded to other points of view, even if they are total garbage and BS. If there is anything else you would like to know, just ask, for I am yours.

Thanks but it's already old news. Been tracking this for hours. Thanks for the link, tho.

The GOP uses tactics like the Nazis did very early on in Germany before they gained complete control. The GOP must think that by disrupting and trying to silence anyone who isn't "them" they "win." One can only hope that these DeLay Brownshirts are exposed to Americans for what they are.

Brownshirt tactics are brownshirt tactics and it SHOULD offend and frighten people ... because it can happen here.

Remember, Delay is a fine "Christian Man... and he continues to prove his morality.

Frankly, I think Lampson should respond by holding another press conference that includes prayers for Tom. I'm sure he could find a preacher who would offer them up for the cameras.

In fact, I wonder if we shouldn't be doing this every time the self-appointed religious right steps egregiously out of line like this ... public prayers for them to see the light, and for God to forgive them for the errors of their ways.

It's the tactic called coals of fire, and it would make the fundie heads explode.

Look. Tom DeLay is going to jail before long. Instead of trying to determine his successor by choosing when to officially resign, a sort of passive-aggressive final act, he should resign immediately and just slink away to await his deserved fate. Then Gov. Perry should call a special election as the U.S. Constitution apears to require. Sounds like Democracy to me. Might even be a good object lesson for Iraq. We are the World’s greatest Democracy, aren’t we? Let’s show it.

Earl,
That is agreat analogy.

I heard that Gov. Perry has already announced he will not call for a special election and will leave the position empty until elections This Fall. Let the lawsuits begin.

Oooo. That's one creepy lookin' guy there in those pictures. Looks like there was one bug that DeLay missed.

 
At 6:51 AM, Blogger glenda said...

DeLay is the BUG, as I'm sure you'd agree, Neil.

A roach, that nothing seems to eradicate. After a nuclear annihilation (provoked by his ilk) there would be roaches and Tom Delay. Scuttling around.

I always knew DeLay is no better than a thug. Nice to have some confirmation. Earl's brownshirt analogy is perfect.

The following Adolph Hitler quote is dedicated to Tom DeLay: "It is not truth that matters, but victory."

I agree with elb. It's like an outdoor version of the Jerry Springer show. Totally disgusting behavior. But how could you possibly expect anything else from that cretin.

 
At 1:07 PM, Blogger glenda said...

Juanita reports that some Republican officials in Brazos County hae sent in aplogies for his behavior. Good for them, I say, to speak out against bully behavior.
