The Lone Star Llaves

The Dem fella from San Antonio/Corpus Christi that wants to be our U.S. Senator says the folks from along the border will make Dems winners in 2008. "They are the key" he says. I guess he's talking about Latino voters. So he's going to take a tour and visit with Latino voters in McAllen, Brownsville, Del Rio, Eagle Pass, and Laredo. I guess someone forgot to tell him that Harris County has a whole lot of Latino voters too. Hey, don't worry. The National and Texas Dem Parties don't know that either. Check out Commentary's web page on H-Town's Latinos.

Commentary has said it once and I'll say it again. Dems won't win in Texas unless they start with H-Town's and Harris County's Latino vote first - period!

On a related matter, it is obvious that H-Town's Latinos aren't doing a good enough job of promoting local Latinos because folks in America still don't know we exist. Maybe we can get Numero 45, James Rodriguez, One Of My Best Friends, and Dante to cut a worldwide PSA letting folks know a million plus Latinos live in the H-Town area. Think about it though, aren't we one of the few burgs in the USA that has a Spanish language nickname for a major sports figure - "El Caballo." That's all I'm going to say about that for today.

Speaking of Numero 45, we're still 7 and 1/2 out, but we have a pulse.
