Don't Call It a Comeback

Hey, maybe we will have Tom DeLay to kick around some more:
The White House is looking at a list of cost-cutting candidates to head the Office of Management and Budget, and Rep. Tom DeLay, R-Texas, may be on it.

The former House majority leader, who announced he will resign from Congress and is under a state indictment on political money laundering charges, is listed as a possible replacement for Josh Bolten, the U.S. News and World Report said.
Hey, what better way for an administration that spends like a drunken sailor and engages in shady no-bid contracts to make it crystal clear that they're concerned about fiscal responsibility and integrity in government than by considering an indicted money launderer as the man in charge of the federal budget? I suppose they also considered DeLay as a replacement for John Snow at Treasury, but decided to go with a more seasoned financial expert instead.

(Thanks to firedoglake for bringing this insanity to my attention.)
