Don’t come to my window, Melissa

No, not that one. The one in question is Melissa Goodwin, who Governor 39% appointed as judge of the newly created 427th District Court in Travis County, and sacrificial lamb in next’s year election.

Actually, we should thank Perry because she will get whipped like she did in last year’s JP race when Susan Steeg humiliated her. Why did she lose? Largely, Steeg was smarter, more experienced, better organized, and has great ideas on conducting court business. Goodwin’s part in defeat – well, she thinks she’s special.

Last Saturday, the Statesman’s fluff piece about her reminds you of a Greater Austin Chamber of Commerce press release to the Austin Business Journal, or at least an affirmation piece in the Hyde Park Baptist Sunday bulletin. Seriously, is the Statesman hiring grads from Liberty or Regent?

Goodwin says, “I don’t like to ask for help.” Her mother talks about her daughter’s independence coming from her European immigrant grandparents. Whatever.

That 39% lifted her from the political garbage heap speaks volume about her “independence”. What do you expect from conservatives? The same old baloney – Everybody has to pull themselves up by the bootstraps, except them because there is always some special circumstance.

Enjoy the sweetness, Melissa. By this time next year, you’ll be back on the heap.
