Tancredo delights in rivals trying to out-Tancredo Tancredo

The word "Tancredo" is now a verb.

(CNN) - Rep. Tom Tancredo, R-Colorado, said he delighted in hearing the other candidates argue over his pet issue: battling illegal immigration.

"This has been wonderful," Tancredo said. "... For a guy who usually just stands on the bookend here on the side and just listens all the time, that's kind of frustrating - you know, in other debates."

"I have to tell you, so far it's been wonderful, because all I've heard so far is people trying to out-Tancredo Tancredo. It is great! I am so happy to hear it," he said.
