Tina Fish with the stupid...

Tina Fish, the Chairwoman of the Texas Republican Party, decided to attack Democratic Senatorial Candidate Mikal Watts. Now, you all know I'm for Noriega, mostly because he's a real man and I think he'll contrast nicely to Cornyn who is a little undead girl.

Seriously, wouldn't you LOVE to see Cornyn in a cage match? With Zombie George Burns who would totally kick his ass? Ahhh, good times.

But back to Tina Fish. She decided to waste her time playing in the Democratic Primary instead of worrying about her very real and pressing fundraising problems (that's the rumor making the rounds here in Austin) by attacking Watts for being a trial lawyer. As if that was a big secret.

Now, I'm a banker. You wouldn't think I'd like trial lawyers, but I do (except when they get involved in politics beyond fundraising... they're bad at everything but). They serve an essential function in a capitalist economy with a absentee government... putting the brakes on some of the more outrageous abuses of consumers by corporations. Tina Fish of course, thinks corporations can do no wrong. Tell that to the people who lost pets because of tainted dog food, Tina. Food that the corporation that made it KNEW was bad.

Do trial lawyers go too far? Sure, some... but on balance they, like most corporations, actually do a good job for their clients and customers. Of course, Tina Fish would rather focus on the negatives...

Watts sued one of the world's largest automakers for millions of dollars, claiming that its product had caused serious injuries to occupants of the vehicle.

Of course, what Tina Fish doesn't mention is that the folks in question were driving on some of those Firestone tires that had a nasty habit of disintegrating that Ford was all the time putting on Explorers. She did take the time to mention that the folks had ingested 'drugs' of some sort, as if that has anything to do with a badly manufactured tire or an automaker's decision to use those defective tires.

What is it about Republicans that makes them hate trial lawyers until a tree falls on them and an insurance company won't give them the compensation they feel they deserve?

Tell you what, Tina Fish...You worry about fixing your house (seriously, you've presided over the rapid decline of the Republican Party in Texas. You should worry about how YOU look as an ineffectual leader) and leave the Democratic Primary to Democrats. That way you'll at least have a fighting chance when next April rolls around and we're on your sorry ass.

Oh, and do something about those horse teeth, you pedestrian slob.

Honey, you know I love ya more than my luggage...but enough with the gender slurs. The next time you refer to Cornyn as a "little girl" I'm gonna drive back to Texas just to kick your butt.

When McBlogger says "little girl", he means it as a sizist slur.
