Tom Delay-ACU

(Guest blogged by Logan Murphy)

Howie Klein has a great post about Tom Delay's less than warm reception from the American Conservative Union. Apparently, Tom's appointment to the ACU's board has other members mad as hornets.

Down With Tyranny:

OK, I'll try to make this my last mention of Tom DeLay until his trial; no promises though. Yesterday's Houston Chronicle got to the bottom of why 4 board members of the American Conservative Union resigned when the ACU brought on the Little Bug Man. I mean, we all know why-- no one wants to be associated with an outrageous and exposed crook like DeLay-- but what's interested is how they couched their disdain for their former champion.

SilentPatriot: In other Tom DeLay-related news, check out this excerpt from his new book. I wonder if he remembers writing this paragraph.

"I believe it was Adolf Hitler who first acknowledged that the big lie is more effective than the little lie, because the big lie is so audacious, such an astonishing immorality, that people have a hard time believing anyone would say it if it wasn't true. You know, the big lie — like the Holocaust never happened or dark-skinned people are less intelligent than light-skinned people. Well, by charging this big lie" — that DeLay violated campaign-finance laws in Texas — "liberals have finally joined the ranks of scoundrels like Hitler."
