The Tom DeLay Blog

No, that's not a joke.

Tom DeLay - Tom DeLay - has a blog.

In one post, titled "There you go again," DeLay presents a critique of Jimmy Carter's book, Palestine: Peace, Not Apartheid. He gets the title wrong.

Not satisfied with being perhaps our nation’s worst President, Jimmy Carter has decided to “write” a book on the Middle East that has further solidified his position as a failure as a foreign policy practitioner, activist and pundit.

Today with Islamic extremism on the rise, Iran’s leader calling for Israel to be “wiped off the map” and Hezbollah and Hamas continuing their attacks on Israel, Jimmy Carter has come out with his new book. In it, he blames the problems in the Middle East not on Islamic extremism, but on Israel.

In his new book “Palestinian Peace, not Apartheid”, (the very title should tell you that it is a hit piece on Israel) Carter liberally mixes Hamas talking points with reality.
Yes, I suppose that title could tell you something about the book... if that were the title of the book.

And, why does The Hammer put "write" in quotes? Is he accusing Carter of plagiarism? Of sending up smoke signals?

And, as adorable as the post is, the comments are even more precious. A sampling:

    Bravo for Tom DeLay in his fight against moral relativism! In this hour above all we need someone with the integrity to lead us FORWARD not backward, UPWARD not forward, and always turning towards FREEDOM.

    It seems the only people disputing Pres.Carter's book are Zionists & Christian
    Fundamentalists.
    I for one think it is right on target

    Mr. Carter was not 1/100th the president you will be, sir.

    DELAY IN '08!!!!!

    P.S. You should put sarcasm quotes around "book" as well as "write." Rule of thumb: you can't have too many sarcasm quotes, and if you're in doubt, include them.

And, my personal favorite:

    I, for one, do not understand why the Arabs and Israelis cannot settle their disputes like good Christians.

Keep in mind, these are moderated comments. These are the ones DeLay (or, his ghost-blogger) decided to keep.

Thanks for the memories, Hammer, and for the best belly laugh I have had in days.

Keep 'em comin'!
