Howard Dean's Democracy for America is in the process of making Tom DeLay a new kind of American idol.

They've since whittled the list down to the top 30; you can cast your vote here. A few of our faves:

Tom Delay: Hammering the Constitution one civil right at a time

Tom DeLay: All His Ethics Aren't in Texas

How am I doing? (Photo of DeLay) Call (DeLay's DC office number)

And in case you want to get a head start on hammering that Capitol Hill switchboard: (202) 225-5951
