What will former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay do now that conservative judges in Texas have released him from prison? The same thing anyone would do — write a racist, secessionist manifesto with an avowed birther and become a born-again states’ rights fetishist.
DeLay’s co-author, he said, will be none other than Jerome Corsi, a conservative columnist and bestselling author who has been one of the most prominent proponents of conspiracy theories alleging President Barack Obama was not born in the United States. In the interview with Newsmax, DeLay, who returned to the House floor for a “victory lap” last week, said he’d “spent a lot of time” with Corsi and shared some details about their planned book project.
“Our book is tentatively entitled ‘Shut Her Down,’” DeLay said. “It’s about the revival of the Constitution and how to return power from all those federal programs to the states, which have sovereignty.”
How about another victory lap on the House floor? I don’t think enough people saw it the first time. Let’s have another round of applause from House Republicans. How about another appearance on Dancing with the Stars? DeLay can wear a confederate flag lapel pin.
Promoting the idea of essentially dismantling the United States of America as we know it is becoming quite the lucrative business.
It’s a good thing I’m not in charge.
