Tom Delay Jokes

They were troubled because Tom Delay was behaving in an inappropriate manner. They decided that the only course of action left was to create an 11th Commandment to get their message across.

Now the problem remained exactly how to word this new commandment so that it matched the other commandments in style and holy inspiration. After great meditation and discussion, they concluded:

"Thou shalt not covet thy trip from thy lobbyists."

"The Republicans are in trouble. Bill First, the Senate leader, is under investigation, Karl Rove is about to be indicted, Tom DeLay was indicted twice in one week.

As soon as they get caught doing something wrong 'I'm an idiot. I didn't know what was going on.'" -Jay Leno
