house antics
10 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Big Buy is about the infamous Tom DeLay and his antics in the house in Washington, but mainly in his home state of Texas – bought and paid for. The first time I heard Tom DeLay speak I knew he was a problem child. A must see for every liberal and any open minded conservatives, if you can find any. Most of the information is taken directly out of the press accounts. Lots of well deserved DeLay bashing and . The interviews are interesting and the people seemed very Texas. If you're looking for entertainment, go somewhere else. If you want to understand more about our political system and how people can destroy it, this is for you.
