Aw shucks! We have DeLay to kick around for 96 more days. You gotta love it! All
the former CD 22 wannabees now have to put their campaign gear in storage. Looks
like their only option is to spend a ton of money saying not so nice things about
Nicky and asking the more reasonable GOPers (an oxymoron?) to hold their noses and
vote for DeLay. I sure would hate to be the GOP strategists/consultants that are

The Census Bureau now says that Harris County in 2005 was 37.3% Latino. In 2005,
blue eyes had 38.4% of the total county population. No wonder the far righties want

are going to a non-profit fundraiser where you are supposed to dress like a rock/pop
star. She's going as Pink - Pink? To show you how far out of it I am, I didn't

Idol. I've been told he has Taylorlike moves. If they had a fundraiser where you
went as a pro baseball player, Commentary would go as Tony LaRussa, the manager of
the Cardinals. Tony and I both wear shades to night games at the yard.
Well today marks two years Daily Commentary has been giving his takes. I want to
thank Father Bill's constituency - the human race - for providing me with the
wonderful material that has sustained Daily Commentary. To those that email me and
say I am boring - don't log on.
