Tom Delay

I'm sure y'all remember the bug-killer.

It's funny. I met him once at a CPAC convention. He's got the most sinister eyes you'd ever want to see. The man is evil.

A note about this: You'll here him mention the Northern Marianis Islands in this clip. Tom Delay almost single-handedly made sure that the sweatshop owners that ran that island were able to slap a "Made in the USA" label on the clothes they manufactured, even though their factories were not subject to minimum wage or worker protection laws. These factory owners imported their labor from China; they promised the moon. When the workers got to the Islands, they found themselves trapped in what was essentially a labor camp. They even forced abortions on women when they got pregnant.

Tom Delay, champion of Christian Conservatives everywhere, made sure things never changed.
