Delay Book Update: The Hammer Denies His Own Words

AltTulsa blogged earlier about former House Majority Whip Tom Delay, who's making the rounds this week pushing his new book, No Retreat, No Surrender.

Ain't capitalism great? Delay resigned from Congress in disgrace, but there's no law against turning your troubles into a gold mine.

Yet Delay can't quite remember what he wrote. When MSNBC's Chris Matthews questioned Delay about a phrase he used to refer to former Texas Rep. Dick Armey ("drunk with power"), Delay insisted he did not use that phrase. Delay said he referred to Armey as "blind with power."

Frustrated, Matthews read the "drunk with power" phrase to Delay from Delay's own book. Cornered, Delay was forced to admit that he didn't have his glasses.

Poor Tom, stumbling all the way to the bank.
