Tom DeLay's so-called blog

In the previous post, remarking on the amateurishness of Tom DeLay's new blog and the silliness of the comments therein, I wrote:

    Keep in mind, these are moderated comments. These are the ones DeLay (or, his ghost-blogger) decided to keep.
Well, guess what? He does use a ghost-blogger.

Think Progress, via The Carpetbagger, has the scoop:

Criminally indicted ex-House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-TX) launched a personal blog yesterday. The new site seemed to mark a shift for DeLay: last year, he said he found the fact that Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy “does his own research on the Internet” to be “just incredibly outrageous.” Now, DeLay says he wants to “be a role model that leaders ought to have their own blog.”

During an appearance last night on MSNBC, DeLay was asked about the mechanics of writing for his new blog. “Well, I’m not a very good writer,” DeLay acknowledged. “I have the ideas, and I have somebody else put the words together.” Apparently he still isn’t interested in doing research on the Internet.
Well, that's no fun.

See ya, Hammer. It's been real.

Actually, no it hasn't.
