    Sorry, I don’t buy this. I think most ordinary Texans that live, work and raise their families are just as whacked out as their statewide Republican candidates. Otherwise, the state would have more mentally balanced politicians. Somebody elects all those wingnuts.

    It has nothing to do with wingnuts. The are right-wing ….nut jobs.

    M Mackenzie: From poll tax (formerly only payable during January when the Christmas bills come in, now requiring up to a 300 mile trip and $20), to taffymandering (one district went from the Red River to less than 100 miles from salt water), to few polling places, to elections on a work day only, there are many wondrous ways to keep a vote from resembling the will of the people.

    You gotta admit….ANY group that would Elect both shrub Bush, AND Goodhair Perry to be their Governor CAN’T have too much of a connection to NORMAL people!

    Did Saddam ever develop thermonuclear weapons? Thank Bush, jr, former governor of Texas, and one of our greatest presidents.


    Does the government have too many departments for anyone to remember the three that need to be eliminated first? Thank Governor Perry for proving that fact.


    And Texas chooses most of the nation’s school books, and this makes it possible for most of American’s students to learn that global warming and evolution are hoaxes, and the world is 6018 years old and only the deity determines daily temperatures.


    Greatest state in the Nation. (And when Global Warming, which doesn’t exist but which has re-opened the Northwest Passage, finally melts Alaska, once again the largest.)

    Isn’t that just an assturdoid? (Sorry, that was just too easy and obviously implied.)

    Dear Ben Sargent: Employers do not give a damn about whether employees believe in evolution. Employers DO give a damn whether employees can read, write and do math proficiently. Something high school graduates from liberal strongholds like Detroit cannot do.

    According to a 2009 Pew poll, six percent (6%) of scientists identify as Republicans. 55% identify as Democrats.
    “These results were not a complete surprise,” said Scott Keeter, Director of Survey Research at Pew, in an interview with the Huffington Post. He said they can be mostly attributed to “the difference between Democratic and Republican parties with respect to issues.”

    Amazing how quickly facts can deal with your assertions, Doctor Warbucks. Scientists are normally very well educated, by definition.

    Pretty much, each time, both men won by a bare majority of those who bothered to vote.
    You truly get the government you don’t vote for.

    Typical Liberal/Progressive bull $hit! I expect nothing better from such people.

    When I travel, I don’t let anyone know that I live in this state. I came here and spawned back in the John Connally/Ann Richards eras and it was not so bad. Once I had a family, moving to another state was not a good option so now that the political nut cases have come to power and old age has moved in, one has to just grin and bear it.

    Just further proof that there is no one who believes there is such a thing as a “free lunch” more than a conservative.

    @TheTrustedMechanic

    Read the article and here’a a quote:
    .
    “The next time some smarmy teabagger tries to tell you it’s liberals who are ruining the country and spending us into oblivion,”
    .
    Were you trying to imply that the article wasn’t biased? That the author didn’t have an axe to grind? Didn’t work for the DNC?
    .
    I’d be more inclined to believe it if the author pretended to be impartial.
