I know, I know, you're saving all your Tom DeLay viewing energy for his upcoming appearance on Dancing With the Stars. Don't blame you. So if you missed yesterday's Hardball, Talking Points Memo recaps the fleet-footed one's take on those rowdy health care town halls…
"This has been going on forever. When I did my town hall meetings — I'll never forget one back in the 80s, on health care, by the way. They brought in quadriplegics on gurneys and dumped them on the floor in front of my podium. This is not new. What's new is the people who came into disrupt my town meetings, we just let them go on," DeLay said.
Weird! Tom DeLay can't forget that incident, but no one else can remember it. I'm sure it happened if he said it did, though. And I'm sure Tom DeLay subsequently cured those quadriplegics by laying his hands on them, which is probably why people were dumping them on the floor in front of his podium in the first place.
I mean, what other reasonable explanation is there?
