Be Afraid, Be Very Afraid

Nate Silver, the man who introduced math to political polling, is giving the Republicans a slight edge to control the Senate in 2015. I can see one of two results if that happens: one, we get two more years like the last four of gridlock and political impotence; two, the Loony Wing is ascendant and we see impeachment hearings. In either event, I suspect the party will be short-lived and will end with Hillary Clinton pounding Ted Cruz or Rand Paul in 2016.

They are evidently in a race to out-Ted Cruz/Ted Nugent each other.

Keep it Classy, Laird


So Lyndon Laird (the accidental Republican candidate for state representative) has a large yard sign right next to the Goodwill Superstore in Burleson. We can therefore conclude that either A) he’s illegally placed a sign on a right of way; or B) he’s illegally placed a yard sign on property belonging to a 501(c)(3) non-profit. Neither would surprise me, nor would it surprise me to learn that Goodwill has no idea it’s there.

Everyone Hates Ted Cruz, Part 2

Even Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky) hates Ted Cruz (Tea Party-Ontario). This, combined with the incredible unpopularity of Cruz’s kamikaze strategy, indicates to me that’s he’s EXACTLY the sort of bold leadership Republicans need to nominate in 2016.


UPDATE: Ted Cruz has now officially snatched the Krazy Krown from Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK). And let me tell you something, you’ve got to be working pretty damned hard to be crazier than Tom Coburn…

Lyndon Laird: Nobody’s Child

Lyndon Laird is either a “lifelong conservative Republican” who accidentally donated money to Barack Obama and accidentally ran for office as a Democrat or he’s a transparent fraud. You make the call.

Close But No Cigar

Now that Rob Orr has decided not to throw his empty hat in the ring again, it’d almost be worth it to run again (knowing Jesus Christ Himself couldn’t get elected in this county as a Democrat) just for the chance to say what I really think. On the other hand, tar can cause severe skin irritation and feathers itch…

It’s The End of the World As They Know It (And I Feel Fine)

Overreact much?

Meanwhile, Back At The Ranch…

…Texans happily elect the worst judge in America and a creepy-voiced fanatic who has already pledged to be yet another obstructionist jackass.

Now Let The Whining and Blame Throwing Begin!

Why Romney Lost:

1) He didn’t pretend hard enough to be conservative;
2) Hurricane Sandy only attacked white people;
3) Obama used his Satan powers to deceive nation;
4) Voters inspired by free giveaway of iPhone 5’s to Democrats;
5) Nominating a rich, elitist asshole after the largest economic meltdown in 70 years turned out not be the winning strategy heretofore imagined;
6) Influx of Muslim illegal alien voters from Mexico who voted with fake IDs
