Tom Delay is French and shows it!

Our 'friend', Congressman from Sugar Land, Texas, former House Majority Leader, and (former) prominent member of the Republican Party Tom Delay (see our posts here, here or here) did not bid adieu (Oops, a French word!) at a good old Texan Steak-House but at a French restaurant.
Tom Delay enjoying French cuisine? What a traitor or maybe a flip-flop. As this article reminds us, he after all said a few things about France.
"France and Iraq are losing credibility by the day and they are, I think, losing status in the world," DeLay said in February 2003 as the war loomed. "They are walking a fine line that is very dangerous."
During the 2004 presidential race, national Republicans made much of Sen. John Kerry's French relatives. DeLay would open speeches saying: "Good afternoon, or, as John Kerry might say, 'Bonjour.'"
After former Senate Democratic Leader Tom Daschle criticized President Bush saying he had failed at diplomacy so miserably the country was forced to war, DeLay fired back in a news release: "Fermez la bouche, Monsieur Daschle," telling the South Dakota Democrat to shut up in French.
Well, DeLay’s spokeswoman made it clear that “This is an American restaurant that serves French cuisine.”! Pewh, we feel relieved!
Delay.. that's kind of French isn't it?
