Kay Bailey Hutchison is Failing in Her Rhetoric
About the only campaign that comes close to the disaster that is Creigh Deeds’ campaign in Virginia is the craptacular spectacle of Kay Bailey Hutchison running her Texas gubernatorial primary.The campaign has thus far been a disaster.

‘Doctor’ at Jackson-Lee town hall: lying, and defensive about it.
I covered this briefly yesterday on another social media site (which is a pretentious way of saying that I Twittered it): Patterico’s Pontifications tracked down a ‘Doctor’ Roxana Mayer who spoke in favor of health care rationing at what is rapidly becoming Sheila Jackson-Lee’s infamous town hall event. It turns out that she’s not a doctor; she was a state Obama delegate, and is an | Read More »

Redstate Gathering Video – Ted Cruz
Ted Cruz was the Solicitor General for Texas, and is running for Attorney General. He gave a terrific speech, telling us the story of defending Texas’ 10th amendment rights against international courts and the Justice Department. A very engaging speaker, he had us spellbound throughout. His story of his father escaping Cuba is amazing to hear. Ted Cruz from David Thompson on Vimeo.
RedState Gathering – Ted Cruz.
This interview is from last week’s RedState gathering. Ted Cruz is the guy running for Texas Attorney General – and as you can see, he’s pretty serious about this race. He’s also pretty serious about using the new social media to get his message out: I think that I have maybe one more of these interviews left: as always, you should check out Dave_in_Fla’s blog | Read More »
Redstate Gathering Video – Michael Williams
Michael Williams is an amazing, dynamic speaker. He is the current Railroad Commissioner for Texas, and the odds on favorite to replace Kay Bailey Hutchinson when she leaves the Senate in the next few months.

One of hopefully many scenes from the August Health Care Rationing Grassroots Feedback Seminars.
Not one of my videos, but it should warm your heart. Via Instapundit, I present to you this delightful exercise where Rep. Lloyd Doggett (D, TX) gets some feedback from his constituents on health care rationing. By the way, do you know how Republican TX-25 is? It’s not. D+6. Doggett was apparently not expecting this level of mentoring from his employers. Moe Lane PS: Looks | Read More »
Kay Bailey Hutchison will resign seat to run for Governor of Texas.
I find some of the rhetoric going on between Senator Hutchison and Governor Perry to be already a bit harsh, so here are the bare bones of the story: Hutchison told WBAP-AM (820) host Mark Davis that she would officially kick-off her campaign in August. “Formal announcement: I am in. Then the actual leaving of the Senate will be sometime — October, November — that, | Read More »

Video: http://www.rickperry.org/blog In Washington, big government bailouts are rewarding failure and irresponsibility. Massive pork projects are robbing taxpayers under the radar. The colossal spending monster (Congress) is ultimately leading us to unbearable taxation and debt for the | Read More »

Keep Eastside Strong.”The white homeowner has lived in the neighborhood for ten years.Here is the money paragraph from the article:Police have not classified | Read More »
