Tom Delay is being considered for head of OMB?

LJ-SEC: (ORIGINALLY POSTED BY [info]wyldraven)

According to this report from United Press International, the White House is actually considering Delay to head the Office of Management and Budget.

DeLay on short list for OMB job

WASHINGTON, April 12 (UPI) -- The White House is looking at a list of cost-cutting candidates to head the Office of Management and Budget, and Rep. Tom DeLay, R-Texas, may be on it.

The former House majority leader, who announced he will resign from Congress and is under a state indictment on political money laundering charges, is listed as a possible replacement for Josh Bolten, the U.S. News and World Report said.

Bolten has been named incoming White House chief of staff.

Other candidates are familiar with the Bush administration, including Deputy OMB Director Joel Kaplan, the head of the National Economic Council, and Rob Portman, current trade czar.

Perhaps in the morning I might try to understand why anyone would consider Delay for any job other than the prison laundry. Tonight, I think I will look on the internet for some Guy Fawkes masks.
