    who happens to be Dewhurst now instead of Bobby Bullock (If only he HAD kicked w in the balls a time or two, we'd be better off as a nation and a state; but that's whiskey under the bridge now, innit?) ... so we the voters in Texas, especially be we poor or brown, are just as well-and-truly screwed.

    Of course, if we hadn't had THREE elected Democrats "change parties" after they got voted in last November so they could come out of the closet as the Rethugs they are, we might be better off.

    Something about the fire that destroyed all Harris County's voting machines last summer still sticks in my craw. Did the subbed-in "lent from surplus" machines (from largely away-from-blue-Houston) come pre-loaded? Quien sabe? It still seems odd that as late as the Sunday before the election the polls were all within the margin of error for that race, yet Lil Ricky pulled out such a huge margin of victory -- and thumbed his nose at every newspaper in Texas, as well as voters who wanted answers to their questions about the state of the state and its budget;  but there's no question about the changes in access (voting locations as well as hours,) and if that didn't suppress Bill White's voters, what did it achieve?

    Meanwhile, the TEA pottiers dance merrily onward toward nihilism hereabouts.

    It's enough to make living in New Mexico attractive.
