    ...the "gene pool" crack was insulting.  Would you want a Texan swing voter to see that?  If we want people to vote for us, we need to show some respect & tolerance for them.

      Texas is one of the best examples of the attacks on any sort of intelligence or critical thinking.

      We HAVE problems. The gene pool comment is not that offensive to a fellow Texan. Perhaps a bit insensitive, but not worthy of an HR.

        you're right, it was insensitive, but educating our children is so deeply important and i've always been the "crazy latina" who wants our kids to learn stuff we don't want them to learn. so yes.

        i admit to being an insensitive brat in this issue.  getting doors slammed in your face while volunteering for so much change that texas needs will do that to you.
