The Reconstruction of Tom DeLay’s Blog

DeLay’s blog is back up and running.  He (or someone) has reposted his initial posts but without the comments on the originals.  By the time I got home, the post about President Carter was up again.  I left a comment, but it’s still in moderation, I guess.  (I’ve checked several times.)  I wrote about Israelis getting Peace Prizes for agreeing to measures that by law the Israeli government has banned.  I also asked if DeLay would only post and not respond in the comments.  I don’t know why my comment hasn’t been posted yet (no time stamp — only a date stamp on comments).

Funny thing is that the DeLay team has let comments on a couple of other posts stand instead of deleting them (as it did the comments on the main posts last night).  I’m sure that those will be saved and pointed to in the future to slam commenters who disagree with DeLay.

Lastly, DeLay showed up on Gallagher’s show this morning, touting his “GAIN” program.  Yes, you read that right, “GAIN” program.  As Roberto said, “why not just call it “PAY ME” and be honest about it.  Watching/listening to DeLay attempt to be relevant is comical and pitiable  — what’s that damned over-used German word?

  1. Is the word you’re thinking of “Schadenfreude”? And yes, it’s definitely been overused. Like ‘parse’, a perfectly good workmanlike term when employed in contexts of grammar, meter, and other linguistic carpenterial thingsees, but not by news anchors looking for a ‘fancy’ (e.g. smart-soundin’) way of saying ‘examine’ or ‘discuss’ or even ‘look at’. However, watching someone like poor IQ-stricken Chris Wallace misuse ‘parse’ does give me a frisson of Schadenfreude.
