Clueless Dude

I don’t think there is anyone in the Lone Star State that can honestly say that Guv Dude has a handle on things. I guess if you are on Death Row, your last request goes like – “I want a chicken fried steak, a shrimp cocktail, a six pack of St. Arnold, pecan pie, and a blackberry with a blue tooth gizmo and unlimited minutes.” Hey, Dude! How do guys on death row get to make cell phone calls to The Dean? Did they text message you first and get an OK? About the only thing that is working well in state government is the 7-0 ‘Horns and you certainly don’t get to take credit for that.

After three days of Early Voting - in Alief (HD 149) plus 110%, Fiesta (HD 146) plus 69%, Jersey Village (HD 135) plus 69%, Hardy Center (HD 140) plus 195%, Wallisville Library (HD 142) plus 81%, Baytown (HD 128) plus 32%, and Moody Park (HD 148) plus 198%. Remember the days when the local GOP leaders used to walk around with swagger and looked down their noses at folks – not anymore.

Speaking of, last night I offered Ty Wiggintonner’s Brother a conditional surrender. I invited him to defect to the Dem side. He said he’s going down with the GOP ship. Way to go Darrin Hall!

Commentary is going to do a taping this afternoon for the local ABC affiliate – Channel 13 – for a panel discussion on the election. The consultant that put out a bunch of lies in the SD 17 race is also supposed to be part of the taping. I wonder if they are going to ask him about his lies. Hey, maybe I’ll bring it up!

On of the lousiest ads of this election season goes to the Lone Star State’s Junior Senator for those ads that play the “Streets of Laredo” tune. Every time he plays that ad, he’s losing votes for sure. Who’s the audience – Gabby Hayes?

More movie quotes:

Obama to his Finance Chair every morning – “Show me the money!” from “Jerry McGuire.”

The Finance Chair to Obama on where to put the money raised – “You’re gonna need a bigger boat.” from “Jaws.”

Nothing to report from The Yard other than to say that Brad Lidge got a save last night wearing Phillies gear.
