The disgraced DeLay is making the rounds

Taegan Goddard's Political Wire had a nice take on the re-emerging slug, Tom DeLay:

Appearing on Hardball with Chris Matthews to promote his new book, No Retreat, No Surrender, it's clear former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-TX) didn't write it and perhaps never even read it before it was published.

Matthews asked DeLay about passages in his book where described former Rep. Dick Armey (R-TX) as "drunk with ambition." Amazingly, DeLay denied writing that, even after Matthews showed him the underlined passage in his own book.

That almost makes up for Tim Russert, who fawned over DeLay on Meet the Press Sunday. Russert treated him like royalty, asking polite questions about the Iraq war and never raising questions about anything, like DeLay's indictment on money laundering charges, that might make the creep uncomfortable.

Sad but true: We get the government we deserve.
