"I have no honor - I am the government."

Via Time

"Arguing against loosening sanctions against Cuba last year, DeLay warned that Fidel Castro "will take the money. Every dime that finds its way into Cuba first finds its way into Castro's blood-thirsty hands.... American consumers will get their fine cigars and their cheap sugar, but at the cost of our national honor."

DeLay has long been one of Congress' most vocal critics of what he calls Castro's "thugocracy," which is why some were surprised last week to see a photo of him smoking a Cuban cigar ÷a Hoyo de Monterrey double corona, which generally costs about $25.
