    because, hard as this is to wrap my head around, apparently the real money all belongs to old white guys. The votes evidently are not as big a deal as the dollars, somehow.

    Bill White had every major paper in Texas endorse him (and a lot of small-town ones, too), and he had endorsements from oil guys (including but not limited by any means to DKos / Gulf Watchers' own eljefebob). Mayors were for Bill White from Texline to Laredo ... and he was ahead in the polls on Sunday before the election, and won the early voting big.

    Li'l Ricky smugly said papers are old-fashioned and irrelevant.

    Li'l Ricky's big-money sugar-daddies ponied up multimillions on Friday-Monday for his campaign coffers.

    Li'l Ricky got re-elected.

    Back when the state was laying out $9,900 a month for his rental palace in a gated community over close to Austin's Town Lake, after the under-renovation Governor's Mansion was torched (the arsonist was videotaped but has still not been caught). Back when the state was laying off Public Health personnel and DPS personnel. Back when the State was so broke the Lege stole money from the schools to fund the contracts with Li'l Ricky's overseas buds building (and converting US-taxpayer-funded highways to) toll roads.
    Back when we were losing state parks to land developers 'cause Li'l Ricky's cronies wanted to profit from the sales.

    LBJ, Van Cliburn, Ike, Wendy Davis, Lady Bird, Ann Richards, Barbara Jordan, Molly Ivins, Sully Sullenburger, Drew Brees: Texas is NO Bush League!
