As reported all over the web today, Tom DeLay officially acknowledged that Republican leadership has absolutely no concept of fiscal conservatism.
House Majority Leader Tom DeLay said yesterday that Republicans have done so well in cutting spending that he declared an “ongoing victory,” and said there is simply no fat left to cut in the federal budget. […]
Asked if that meant the government was running at peak efficiency, Mr. DeLay said, “Yes, after 11 years of Republican majority we’ve pared it down pretty good.”
This is so delusional that it really belongs in the Onion, not the Moony Times.
But just in case Tom would like some suggestions for fat to cut (and he couldn’t find any in the transportation bill), I’ve got two words:
Let’s take the DEA budget and put it toward rebuilding New Orleans.
