Pearland Councilman Kevin Cole fightin' mad for his man Tommy DeLay, calls opponents "ass hole"

DeLay: Cole has his back in P'Land.
Pearland City Councilman Kevin Cole always reminded me of a banty rooster, strutting around like the cock of the walk.

I tangled with him a few times when I was covering Brazoria County for the Chronicle and he took extreme exception with some the things I wrote about the problems of then-City Manager Paul Grohman. He called and yelled at me and called my editors and yelled at them. "Who is this guy?" my editors asked.

Why, he's Kevin Cole, the banty rooster of Pearland, Texas.

Now Cole is going to the mat defending U.S. Rep. Tom DeLay, whose star is falling even among some of his Republican backers in Washington, due to ethics allegations.

DeLay's enemies smell blood and are ratcheting up their campaign against him.

This has Councilman Cole's dander up, his blood boiling, his fists balled up. How do I know this? He's started name-calling. If a banty rooster could talk, that's what he'd do, too, but they can't, so they just strut around, like the cock of the walk.

Ever the statesman, Cole, a Baptist deacon, fired off this email to a group of DeLay's Houston-area opponents, according to the anti-Delay group.

Hey ass hole [sic]. Tom Delay happens to be my congresman [sic] and I am happy with the job he does for me and my district. Why don’t you get the F@&* out of our district and leave us alone. Better yet, come speak to me personally and I will show you what I think of you.

Yup, that sounds like the Kevin Cole I remember. The Banty Rooster!

Let's hear the name of the Baptist church that allows this guy to serve as a Deacon. I'd like to banty his rooster.
