In The Jailhouse Now: Tom DeLay's Prison Soundtrack

tom_delay_mugshotjan10.jpg
Tom DeLay is, in Lonesome, Onry and Mean's opinion, one of the lowest, vilest, most divisive, scum-sucking snake oil salesmen ever to enter politics. Now DeLay is heading to the pokey to serve time for his money laundering activities (pending his appeal, of course).

We don't recall another House member going to the Big House since Illinois congressman Dan Rostenkowski went down for mail fraud in 1996, back when Newt the Poot and DeLay were prattling on about their Contract With America. Look where that BS took us.

The smugness of Delay's reply to the judge that he doesn't feel remorse because he didn't feel like he was doing anything wrong at the time is so typical of the arrogance of our elected officials that it makes LOM want to puke.

Hopefully the Bug Juice Salesman is toting his iPod when he heads off to Seagoville or one of those other white-collar country-club prisons where the privileged criminal element is housed. Here are a few suggestions for his listening pleasure as he plays croquet with Jeff Skilling.

1. Jimmie Rodgers, "In the Jailhouse Now":

(as performed in O Brother, Where Art Thou?)

No trip to the pen is complete without Rodgers' seminal ode to running afoul of the law. The Father of Country Music and Singing Brakeman had known more than a few who had taken the ride downtown.

2. Johnny Cash, "Folsom Prison Blues":

The Man in Black had a few run-ins with law enforcement back in the day and, of course, will forever be known for his live show at Folsom Prison memorialized in Walk the Line.

Give him lethal injection!

What? Isn't that popular in Texas?

Delay probably won't be eligible for parole because he won't express remorse.

Welll, I guess this is better late than never, but the damage has been done and the American people were screwed by this crook and his cronies.
