Latest from the House of Contempt
Looks like the idiotic scheme of having VIP delegates to the GOP convention stay at a luxury liner docked in New York harbor isn't dead after all. Nice place to do bidness out of the public eye.
The House majority leader, Tom DeLay, would like the ship to serve as a floating entertainment center for Republican members of Congress, and their guests, when the convention comes to New York City next Aug. 30 to Sept. 2.

"Our floating hotel will provide members an opportunity to stay in one place, in a secure fashion," said a spokesman for Mr. DeLay, Jonathan Grella. He did not elaborate.

A few words Mr. Grella and Mr. DeLay might want to consider: "limpet mine". Also, "USS Cole".
