Tom Delay just wants so badly to remain politically relevant. Instead, he just looks pathetic and caught up in so much projection and denial that one almost feels sorry for him. Almost.

NY Post:

Ousted House Majority Leader Tom DeLay predicted yesterday that Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton will win the presidency in 2008 - and that Barack Obama would likely be the vice president.

The Houston-area Republican insisted a vast left-wing conspiracy - comprised of liberal groups like, bloggers and the mainstream media - would propel Clinton to the presidency.

"Hillary will be the next president of the United States because they have built a coalition," DeLay told the conservative magazine Human Events during a luncheon with conservative bloggers hosted by the magazine and the Heritage Foundation.

Human Events:

DeLay named Clinton loyalists Harold Ickes, Sidney Blumenthal, James Carville, Paul Begala and Joe Lockhart as the masterminds behind the left-wing coalition. He said that these groups, more than anything else, contributed to the GOP's fall this November. "I have never seen a more powerful coalition," he said.

Bless his addled little brain. He even delved into Macaca territory, calling Barack Obama a "Marxist" and comparing him to Rep. Harold Ford:

DeLay also implored conservatives to start digging into Obama's past. He said Obama's record in the Illinois Senate was on par with a "Marxist leftist." Citing defeated U.S. Senate candidate Harold Ford of Tennessee, DeLay said Obama was attempting to disguise his liberal views.

Here's the kicker: you know his website? The one that he doesn't actually write? Proving the adage that there's a sucker born every minute, Human Events reports that he's got subscribers already.

One day after launching the new website, DeLay said he's had 100 people pay the $52 per year to join the Grassroots Action and Information Network.
