He posted some verbiage showing his true brilliance and his enthusiasm for blogging;
Welcome to TomDeLay.com and thank you for visiting my new blog. Over the course of my political life I have learned many things, one of which is that not all good ideas come from Washington, D.C.. In fact I think that most of the best ideas come from concerned citizens from all over The United States.
Unfortunately, many D.C. insiders are simply incapable of looking outside the capital beltway for fresh opinions and new approaches that might otherwise help our nation.
I have created this blog in order to provide Americans with a new meeting place where such opinions and viewpoints might be better shared, discussed and debated; a place where conservative and traditionalist Americans might speak truth to power and to one another.
In all honesty, I did not fully realize the impact or potential of the blogosphere until very recently, when Red State gave me the opportunity to post some of my observations in the wake of the recent midterm elections. The response I received was overwhelming, and I would like to again thank the fine people at that site.
This experience brought me to the immediate realization that I needed to become involved in the blogosphere. TomDelay.com is the culmination of my new found understanding.
I am both extremely excited and energized by this opportunity to meet with you here, in the online marketplace of ideas. I look forward to working in collaboration not competition with all those who already use blogs as a way to fight against and present an alternative to institutionalized liberal media bias.
I hope that you will return often. Thanks again.
Then the comments started--, loving, supportive, loyal comments from his fans and supporters-- over 100 of them.
Tommie was so thrilled with the response that within hours of putting up the blog, he took it down. Well, maybe the comments weren't so loving and supportive. Fortunately, before Big Tom the Bug guy took down the blog, one resourceful person scraped and reposted it so we can all enjoy those endearing comments. Here are a few:
Such unmitigated gall.
Your 3 First Principles "Order, Justice, and Freedom" obviously don't include Honesty, Integrity, or Ethics. I particularly like the way the House Ethics Committee chairman, Joel Hefley, was removed after rebuking you 3 times. Yes, he was replaced by Delay groupie Doc Hastings, with a couple other groupies connected with your PAC. Sorta make sure no more untoward rebukes occur.
It's good that you're no longer a Representative; the stench of the 109th Congress will take a long time to fix.

Zalmay Khalilzad is now resigning as ambassador to Iraq. In my opinion, a staunch supporter of the war such as yourself should volunteer to fill this important post. It would do you some good to get first hand knowledge regarding Iraq, a country in which the situation is said to be "grave" and "deteriorating."

What a magnificently, terrifically boring and irrelevant blog. Honestly, who on earth cares what you have to say?

You left Congress disgracefully and you want people to take you seriously? You should be in prison you assclown, piss off Tom.
December 10, 2006 | Unregistered Commenter Tom you suck
Tom DeLay is a p*ssy-ass f*ggot moneygrubber.

Didn't we already stick a fork in your ass and decide you're done?
To paraphrase you: You WERE the Federal Government...now you're a nothing.
The fact that you are trying to keep your name alive by starting a stupid blog is actually kind of pathetic and sad. Please just go away.

You wouldn't know "honesty" if came up and BIT YOU IN THE ASS.

How pathetic you are, Mr. Delay. You are a criminal, and you should be serving time in jail alomg with your buddies Abramhoff and Cunningham.
It is very tempting to list more here, but you can see the rest of them here
In my mind, DeLay is the worst kind of criminal, preying upon democracy and America. He deserves the most severe punishment available.
