Tom DeLay is not dead. In Max Blumenthal’s new video he appears at the College Republicans annual convention, offering an unconventional solution to America’s illegal immigration problem: ban abortion.

"If you don’t believe abortion doesn’t affect you," DeLay told the youngsters, "I contend it affects you in immigration. If we had those 40 million children who were killed over the last 30 years, we wouldn’t need the illegal immigrants to fill the jobs that they are doing today." He pauses awkwardly, before offering this gem: "Think about it."

Our own David Corn also ran into DeLay this week. Corn asked DeLay what he was up to. Trying to be the "Democrats worst nightmare," he answered. Didn’t DeLay already have that gig?

He also said he wanted his old nemesis Newt Gingrich to run for president. That’s just the boost Newt needs.
