Christ, this guy is a waste of skin.  He is on the wrong side of everything.  He is not particularly a good campaigner as evidenced by his "Marlboro Man" ad in the last election.  Tolerating him as my Senator makes me want to rend my clothes and go screaming his multitude of shortcomings on every street corner in the state.  His continued Neo-Nazi approach to representing the people of Texas which appeals only to a minority of nutcases who unfortunately have more sway with the white males than their numbers warrant.

How do I take this guy down?  I want him either vilified or the laughing stock of Texas by his next election.  Since rational argument is useless in Texas(I think there is actually an amendment against rational argument in the state constitution.)  So all that is left to me is dirty tricks and innuendo.  Get Busy, folks, dig up the dirt and let's get this asshole.  I will do so googling and see with what I can uncover.  Your assistance is welcome.  All ideas and misinformation will be considered no matter how outrageous.  Remember that is a proven technique of the propagandist Rove. Read on...

If Limbaugh can disseminate misinformation and "stand by it," we can do no less.

This is a nifty tidbit at http://www.indecisionforever.com/... : Cornyn, a Clinton supporter?

Did you hear the one about the soon-to-be secretary-of-state and the Texas senator?

   Cornyn, you'll recall, had just prevented a unanimous consent vote on Hillary's nomination and Thrush, who saw but did not hear the discussion, characterized the exchange as "heated," which Cornyn denied.

   Well, one of our eagle-eyed sources spotted the same discussion and was able to get within earshot just in time to hear Clinton warn Cornyn, "The Clintons don't forget."

   One day later, Cornyn's objections to Clinton's confirmation magically disappeared and the man who had set the roll call vote in motion voted in favor of confirming Clinton.

The only thing worse than being a Clinton supporter is being an Obama fan in this neck of the woods.  Perhaps if we spread this story far and wide across the net, it might go viral and force Cornyn to make a statement which he will undoubtedly fuck up.

If anyone knows/finds anything else please post it and we will hopefully will find the silver bullet that will stop Cornyn's political career.

BTW, I call him "Cornhole" but this is a family website and I will refrain from using that euphemism for him.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

      for "worst" in that crowd... Inhofe and Lieberman spring to mind. The most depressing result of the last election for me was Rick Noriega's loss to Cornyn. Here we had a kick-ass true Texan, someone who has dedicated his life to public service, in the military and in the Texas legislature, since the 1980s. Rick served in Afghanistan. What sacrifice has Cornyn ever made for his country? He is sickening. We're stuck with him for what, four more years?

      Though that is a great piece of evidence of his homophobia and stupidity, you have to be fairly rational to appreciate it.  Most of JC's constituency is not rational.  I need something like he's meeting Michael Vick in the Bahamas for wild sex parties and some dog fighting.  Thanks anyway.

          Let us spread the rumor that the nick "Big John" refers to his manly equipment.

          After a short time of his neither denying or affirming it, a hooker comes forth and declares JC has the smallest wee-wee she ever saw on a man.

          Devastating.

            Recommended by:

            from women, not men, according to this exit poll.  53% of women overall and 70% of white women voted for Cornyn, so I guess they're "genetic defectives" too.  And 41% of Latino men voted for Cornyn, as did 31% of Latino women.  And 25% of white males voted for Noriega.  I guess they didn't get the memo that they're supposed to be missing a few chromosomes.

            Women and Latinos account for 32.2 of the 55 percentage points Cornyn pulled.  Blaming white men for Cornyn winning is foolish, and making blanket statements based on race and gender is even more so.

        about Ann Richards.

        Richards, Hightower, and a state official who just happened to be black were at a cocktail party in Austin.

        An old, dreadfully racist old judge from East Texas came over and introduced himself, shaking hands with Hightower and the black guy who had introduced himself as Mr. Brown.  The Judge told Hightower he was glad to meet him and "You too, boy" to Mr. Brown.  

        When he shook hands with Ann Richards, she introduced herself as Mrs. Brown.

    apparently Cornyn took that practice to a higher level in TX than ever been done before and he brazenly went on to preach it as ethical approach for all AG's.....
