  •  CM lived in TX. Houston, I believe. (0+ / 0-)

    I trust his experience motivated that comment.

    I usually slam people for making ignorant bigoted comments that criticize whole states or regions of this country (especially when it's obvious that the commenter hasn't even stepped foot there but is repeating a nasty stereotype ).

     I'll even HR the ugliest ones. But I tend to defer to people who speak from specific experience.

    I'm not trying to speak for CM or excuse a salty comment. But he didn't say that Texas has more of these morans. Only that they're "bigger."

    It was a snarky comment based on the favorite saying that "everything is bigger in Texas."

     So while I let this one go. FWIW

      is no more acceptable from somebody who had the chance to stay and fight to make this place as good as it ought to be, but cut and run, than from any outsider.

      We need help, not despite, from Democrats.

      Gilbert Hinojosa is working hard to turn Texas blue.
      He's doing it with damn little support from the National Democratic Party organization or its various arms.

      It really pushes all my buttons to have somebody I've talked to about this before just go right ahead and smear the entire state as if there'd never been a quibble with such bigotry.
