DeLay Pushes His Coalition For A Conservative Majority

Disgraced former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay has been making noises for a couple of years now about creating his own MoveOn.org for the right act

Disgraced former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay has been making noises for a couple of years now about creating his own MoveOn.org for the right activist group, which presumably would offer him a vehicle for, well, whatever it is DeLay does. Last November, he made it official, launching the Coalition for a Conservative Majority.

Since then, DeLay's outfit hasn't exactly made a splash. But Bob Novak reported that DeLay is still out there, pushing his little group, and imploring right-wing activists to send him a check.

Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay has resurfaced, appealing for contributions to the Coalition for a Conservative Majority, which lists him as chairman and founder. DeLay suggested that this be enclosed with any contribution: ''I am thrilled to learn that you have gotten back in the fight against the left by forming" the new organization.

DeLay, who has endorsed John McCain after expressing misgivings, takes positions to the right of the Republican presidential candidate in his fund-raising appeal. DeLay asks: ''Are you concerned by the growing evidence that there are powerful forces inside our government and out who are quietly moving to have America absorbed into a globalist style 'North American Union' with Canada and Mexico?''

Yes, this is what DeLay has been reduced to. The former House majority leader wants people to believe -- as Tom Tancredo, Lou Dobbs and Ron Paul fear -- that U.S. borders will be dissolved and we'll have one big continental country. But if unhinged conservatives send the former exterminator a check, DeLay will step up to take on the "powerful forces inside our government."

I know there are going to be some people who actually run for their checkbook after getting DeLay's letter, but I just can't imagine what they're thinking.
