DeLay gets a book deal

Suzanne Gamboa, AP:

Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, with his career in elective office finally behind him, said today he has a deal to publish a book.

"This is a book that's going to be the history of my career, how it furthered the conservative cause, with my spiritual walk and what I think the conservative cause ought to do next," DeLay, a born-again Christian, told The Associated Press.

DeLay said he'll explain how "everything I've done in my career furthered the conservative cause" and helped change the culture of Washington.

The book will be published by Penguin and should be ready by next spring, DeLay said.

Stephen Mansfield, author of The Faith of George W. Bush is working on the book with DeLay.

DeLay said the working title of his book is No Retreat, No Surrender: The American Passion of Tom DeLay but that could change by the time the book is published.

No Retreat, No Surrender sounds about right for a book on DeLay. Somehow, methinks they'll find a way to work a hammer into the title/subtitle.

I'm guessing he won't mention how he managed to find the one options that will temporarily leave his seat to a Democrat. Heh.
