A tired old joke, yes, but it was the first thing that came to mind after reading about Tom DeLay's speech to the Knesset:
Zionists find ally in DeLay / Evangelical Texan's speech at Knesset stirs conservatives, disturbs Palestinians: "'Standing up for good against evil is very hard work; it costs money and blood,' DeLay told a thronged hall in the Knesset building. 'But we're willing to pay.' "DeLay's speech was, as you might expect, red meat to the lions, completely undercutting Bush's "road map". Call me old fashioned, but I didn't think Congressmen were supposed to be running around making their own foreign policy.
