Jim Black & Tom DeLay - Separated At Birth?
Now that Tom DeLay finally found a clue and will resign from the US House, we can turn our full attention to North Carolina's House Speaker Jim Black. When you think about it, Black is little more than a bad DeLay impersonator.
Let's take a look at Jim Black's playbook, which seems eerily simlar to DeLay's.
Jim Black's Checklist
Develop raging case of helmet head
Learn to wear plastic smile
Get a personal night deposit box
Dole out cash to political cronies
Redistrict state to protect interests
When caught in a scandal, say "Who me?"
Lean on purchased cronies for support
Act innocent and try to ride out the storm
Finally give up and resign in shame
Buy your wife a going away present
Hmmm. Black only has two steps left to be just like his boy DeLay.
