"DeLay To 110th Congress: ‘Make My Day’"

Moments ago on MSNBC, Chris Matthews asked former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-TX) about what he would do to “stop” the 110th Congress from investigating the misdeeds of the 109th Congress and the administration. “My only answer to that,” DeLay replied, “is make my day.”

Transcript:

MATTHEWS: How do you prevent people like Charlie Rangel, the Chairman of the Ways and Means Committee if the Democrats win, from getting his way? Henry Waxman would love to go after the energy business down there in the oil patch down where you live. People like, oh who else, Conyers might get even more aggressive and go after impeachment. I can think of a lot of guys. Let’s think Dave Obey on Appropriations might like to get a little feisty. How do you stop a majority and make it into what you call a lame duck majority?

DELAY: You’re exactly right, Chris, as to what they’re going to do. And my only answer to that is make my day –

MATTHEWS: I was just teasing you Congressman. I don’t believe they’re going to do it, but I know you do.

DELAY: Make my day.
