Mysterious omens

So DeLay left Congress the other day, and huzzah for that, but last night I had a dream where he was a contestant on Jeopardy (one of the other contestants was Tobias from Arrested Development, but that's neither here nor there). They were on the final round. I don't remember what the clue was, just that the answer was "Grover Cleveland." The contestants were being very loud and dashing around trying to find the answer. This isn't right, I thought. Surely Alex will remonstrate with them. But then he didn't. None of the contestants had much money to begin with, and in spite of all their efforts, none of them got it. When DeLay was revealed to have gotten it wrong, there was a palpable sense of relief in the room--nobody wanted this asshole to come back the next day. But then it transpired that, by sheer luck, his virtually nonexistent winnings were higher than those of either of his opponents. And you could tell that Alex's amiability as he announced that DeLay would be returning was very forced.

So anyway: beware. He might only look dead.


Anonymous Anonymous pontificated to the effect that...

Was Tobias painted blue? Did he say wildly inappropriate things but didn't realize it?
