Another DeLay ethics violation?

Time has published a photo that serves as a pretty good example of what these GOP clowns are all about-- Tom DeLay puffing away on a Cuban cigar. He joins the likes of Rush Limbaugh, who's on the record proclaiming his love for $2,000 bottles of wine and communist stogies.

But rest assured-- good ol' Tom DeLay still thinks that Cuban cigars are the work of the devil:

"Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar. And sometimes, according to House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, a cigar is an economic prop to a brutal totalitarian regime. Arguing against loosening sanctions against Cuba last year, DeLay warned that Fidel Castro "will take the money. Every dime that finds its way into Cuba first finds its way into Fidel Castro's blood-thirsty hands.... American consumers will get their fine cigars and their cheap sugar, but at the cost of our national honor."

Man, that's awkward.
