But Tell Us What You Really Think

Q: Tom DeLay? Tom DeLay! How would you describe a man who had taken more than $2.4 million in bribes from defense contractors while he was on the defense appropriations committee?

TOM DELAY: “Duke Cunningham is a hero. He is an honorable man of high integrity.”

For your reference, faithful readers:

Hero (n):

  1. In mythology and legend, a man, often of divine ancestry, who is endowed with great courage and strength, celebrated for his bold exploits, and favored by the gods.
  2. A person noted for feats of courage or nobility of purpose, especially one who has risked or sacrificed his or her life.
Honor (n):
  1. High respect, as that shown for special merit; esteem.
  2. Good name; reputation.
Integrity (n):
  1. Steadfast adherence to a strict moral or ethical code.
  2. The state of being unimpaired; soundness.
I can’t decide what to get Tom DeLay for Christmas. This? Or this?
