Tom Delay is a Masterbirther.

Tom Delay joins the birthers:
Matthews: You're a man of the right and proudly so, I wonder whether you're even comfortable with the way it's headed. We've got people that we have people that question whether the president is legitimate or not. Whether he was born in the US or not and they mean it viscerally. It isn't something they just want to check his papers. They don't think he is. Where are you on that one?

We have people on the far right but they say they are birthers. How far do you go these days, Mr. Leader? Are you over with the birthers are you over with them?

Delay was trying not to answer the question and Chris kept coming back to it.

Delay: Well, I’d like the President to produce his birth certificate.

[Hysterical laughter from Matthews]

Most illegal aliens here in America can. Why can’t the President of the United States produce their birth certificate?

Matthews: Are you actively seeking that paper?

Delay: Yeah.
Chris, will you do me a favor? Will you ask the President to show me his gift certificate — I mean, his — gift certificate — his birth certificate?

Matthews: No, I’m not going to ask him.
This is what the Republican party have been reduced to. Now, even "The Hammer" is arguing that Obama might not be an American.

Oh, and he wants to privatise Medicare. Maybe those lunatics holding up signs saying "Keep government hands off Medicare" might just get their wish come true.

"The Hammer" is a complete and utter bastard, a stain on politics, on Texas, on America, on the human race. Nothing he says can be believed or given any credence to. That he still gets any air time is mind boggling to me.

I know. But Bill kristol still gets airtime and he's been wrong regarding every single subject he has pontificated on for years and years and years.

They think giving these nutcases a platform is providing balance.

My favourite of all time was this classic:

We are tempted to comment, in these last days before the war, on the U.N., and the French, and the Democrats. But the war itself will clarify who was right and who was wrong about weapons of mass destruction. It will reveal the aspirations of the people of Iraq, and expose the truth about Saddam's regime. It will produce whatever effects it will produce on neighboring countries and on the broader war on terror. We would note now that even the threat of war against Saddam seems to be encouraging stirrings toward political reform in Iran and Saudi Arabia, and a measure of cooperation in the war against al Qaeda from other governments in the region. It turns out it really is better to be respected and feared than to be thought to share, with exquisite sensitivity,
other people's pain. History and reality are about to weigh in, and we are inclined simply to let them render their verdicts.

The verdict is in. The man is an utter asshole.
