Tomfoolery

From Holden:

More dishonesty from the House Majority Leader via Dan Froomkin

Richard W. Stevenson writes in the New York Times about how Bush brought DeLay along for his Social Security event in Galveston yesterday.

“Inside, Mr. DeLay got a standing ovation from the crowd just before Mr. Bush’s remarks when one of his constituents, Geraldine Sam, a schoolteacher from La Marque, Tex., shouted, ‘We love you, Tom.’

“Ms. Sam said she had been invited by Mr. DeLay’s office.”

UPDATE: an anonymous reader points out that Geraldine Sam of Lamarque, Texas, was one of 20 black Republicans in the Texas delegation to the Republican National Convention in 2004.
