Steve Munisteri is the Big Winner From Tuesday
You have probably never heard of Steve Munisteri, but you need to get to know him. Munisteri is the Chairman of the Texas Republican Party. He got in that position by challenging the Texas Republican establishment. He fought his way in as an outsider. After he won, panic set in among Texas Republicans. They were pretty sure they were screwed. Munisteri was an outsider after | Read More »
Honoring Wendy Davis and the Campaign of Awesome
Wendy Davis, the Democrats’ gubernatorial nominee in Texas, will lose today. I had the honor of coining the phrase “Abortion Barbie” to define her campaign. Sabo, the artist, then did a giant Abortion Barbie poster to celebrate Davis’s trip to California for a fundraiser. He sent me an original of the poster. To honor both Sabo’s gift and Wendy Davis’s campaign that provided months of | Read More »
Coca-Cola’s Anti-Religious Positions
Yesterday, Houston Mayor Annise Parker had to withdraw her subpoenas to Christian pastors in Houston. The mayor demanded several pastors turn over the text of their sermons if those sermons mentioned homosexuality, gay marriage, the mayor, etc. Turns out the Coca-Cola Company’s Nonpartisan Committee for Good Government gave Mayor Parker’s campaign $1000.00. But that’s not the only time Coca-Cola has supported bigotry toward religious adherents | Read More »
MSNBC: those Nazis in Texas with their driver’s license laws! (…Which are much like, erm, Maryland’s*.)
OK, let’s set the scene: [Lynne] Messinger said she spoke to a clerk at the desk, and explained that she had a California driver’s license. She has houses in both California and Texas and goes back and forth between the two, but decided several years ago to switch her voting residency to Texas. The clerk left for a few minutes, then told her to take | Read More »
“Abortion Barbie” Wendy Davis is a Truly Horrible Person. But We Already Knew That.
Wendy Davis rose to fame championing the ability to rip children’s skulls open, vacuum out their brains, then rip them apart. But she did it in pink sneakers, so the media loves her. That is the only reason Wendy Davis is the Texas Democrats’ nominee. She got a Vogue profile referencing her “Barbie like good looks,” a Maria Shriver hagiography for NBC, and a lot | Read More »
Mayor Annise Parker Needs a Bible. Will You Send Her One?
The mayor of Houston, TX, has subpoenaed the sermons of local pastors and the speeches of local religious leaders to see what they have to say about homosexuality. I fear Annise Parker has never read the Bible. If she wanted some sermons so bad, she could go to church, but I don’t know that she will. So I think we should help her out. You | Read More »
Even in Houston, Texas, You Will Be Made to Care
Houston, TX is not thought of as a bastion of liberalism, but it has gone quite rapidly off the deep end. Earlier this year, Houston’s City Council voted on non-discrimination legislation that provides equal protection to the entire swath of the BLTGCZQDLMAO alphabet silliness. In short, if a guy decides he’s a girl and wants to go hang out in the girl’s bathroom, it is | Read More »
Does Andrea Mitchell think Greg Abbott fakes his disability?
If you’re politically tuned in and following the Texas gubernatorial race, you’re probably aware of Wendy Davis’ recent “Wheelchair” ad, which accuses Greg Abbott, a paraplegic, of not caring for other people with disabilities. It’s been called a “historic low” for political advertising, a field with plenty of deplorable entries, but Wendy Davis hasn’t back down from it. Instead, she’s doubled down on it. She | Read More »
I Have a Question
I think the President of the United States owes the American public an answer now. I had been willing to give him the benefit of the doubt in his role as Command-in-Chief, but not now. In Dallas, TX, a health care worker who came into contact with the Ebola patient has contracted Ebola. The health care worker was a trained professional wearing protective clothing. But | Read More »
Cosmopolitan Magazine makes sure Wendy Davis stays a one-issue candidate
Your first reaction may be to wonder “Who cares?” at the news that Cosmopolitan Magazine endorsed Wendy Davis for governor of Texas. However, it is absolutely hilarious that, despite Davis trying to not be a one-issue candidate, the higher-order thinking at Cosmo has effectively boxed her back into that issue which made Abortion Barbie famous/infamous: A pro-choice governor like Davis would also make an enormous | Read More »
Pro-Aborts and Planned Parenthood dealt defeat in Texas
In July, 2013 Governor Rick Perry signed into law a bill, HB 2, regulating abortion in Texas. What the bill did was bring the freewheeling abortion industry under the same type of regulation as other similar medical facilities. While useful in itself, it also exposed the utterly fraudulent nature of anyone who uses “women’s health” as an excuse to support abortion. Because abortion is big | Read More »
#TXGov: Wendy Davis asks Greg Abbott to ignore a law she voted for
If you were hoping for a doozy of a debate Friday night, the Texas Gubernatorial debate proved to be a wonderful experience for us all, and definitely a learning experience as Wendy Davis was shut down in an argument she was making, then proceeded to lose her mind. In case you missed it, here’s the highlight: Davis: Will you drop your appeals in this case? | Read More »
Ted Cruz’s Chief of Staff Move to Campaign Team a Hopeful Sign
If Senator Cruz builds his likely Presidential campaign team just as he built his Senate office team, he may actually have a shot. The good news is that he has taken at least one step in that direction by having Chip Roy, his Senate Chief of Staff, step down from that post to focus more attention on the political side of the business. When Ted | Read More »
Perry Grand Juror Is Democratic Party Activist. Sought Out a Grand Jury Witness While Serving.
Media Trackers has the scoop. A grand juror in the Rick Perry grand jury is not only a Democratic activist, but was active in the party while on the grand jury. Rho Chalmers, who disclosed to the Houston Chronicle yesterday that she was a member of the grand jury that indicted Texas Gov. Rick Perry, was an active delegate to the Texas Democratic Party convention | Read More »
