    Many people on this board envision Texas as liberal big city Austin surrounded by snaggle-toothed, gun-toting, Ted Nugent-listening, Fox News-watching small town yokels.

    Not exactly. Houston, San Antonio, and Dallas are larger than Austin and also blue. Bill White established himself politically as mayor of Houston (beloved by Democratic and Republican Houstonites alike), and the Castro twins are from San Antonio.

      I don't keep up with Houston news, I left the gulf coast for non-miserable-humid-woodrotting-stinking parts of the state years ago and never looked back.  ;)

      Who the hell wants to be part of a political movement that has as its most obvious feature politically correct prune lipped moral scolds and incessant guilt trips about how much we all suck?
